To protect the Moscow region from the coronavirus, had to significantly increase spending on health care and social support. The income of the region has significantly decreased, said in an interview to “Rossiyskaya Gazeta”, the Governor Andrei Vorobyov.
“According to our estimates, this year the regional Treasury can receive less than 133 billion rubles,” — said Vorobyov. According to him, the region will have to abandon major projects, despite help from the Federal budget.
The Governor assured that the spending on social payments, benefits and other support in the suburbs will not be curtailed. But will have to reduce capital expenditures and spending on landscaping and public procurement. Priority for support will be visited a large number of workers, Vorobyov summed up.
Previously, the costs of rescue of Moscow from the coronavirus was announced by the mayor of Moscow Sergey Sobyanin. According to him, the revenues of the city budget before the end of 2020 will decrease by 500 billion rubles. Thus, in his opinion, no need for Moscow to abandon the city’s largest projects, as their implementation will become an additional driver of economic growth.
