“Today I have received a response to a parliamentary inquiry, because the topic was broadcasted and exaggerated very seriously, to the point that next year it should all be implemented. Received was a negative response that for the next year is done can not be”, — told the Deputy about his request to the Ministry of industry and trade, which oversees the issue.

The MP insisted that the project should be implemented, as it will be popular. Ponomarev believes that it is necessary to change: to introduce on a wide range of goods and products, but only to specific products. In his opinion, such a specification to allow implementation of the programme from the point of view of the budget. The MP is convinced that the system of ration cards is able to spur domestic consumption. “This is a very important issue for the processing industry,” insists the Deputy.

In may, Deputy Minister of industry and trade Viktor Evtukhov argued that the program is in the development stage, and its launch planned for 2019. The system involves the distribution of cards to socially vulnerable layers of the population, which would be annually transferred 10 thousand rubles per year. The Ministry of industry even predicted that the system could increase Russia’s GDP by 0.8 percent.
