the poverty Reduction in Russia to double by 2024 is a major national goal. About this on air of the First channel said the Vice-Premier of the Russian Federation Tatyana Golikova.

“Now this is our main goal — reducing poverty by half by 2024” — quoted by RIA “Novosti” Deputy Chairman of the government.

Recall, back in January of this year, she noted that below the poverty line live in Russia more than 18 million people, most of them (70-80%) are families with children.

Meanwhile, from the crisis caused by the pandemic coronavirus infection COVID-19, most of all can suffer it is the poor people. This was in mid-may, warned the head of “RUSNANO” Anatoly Chubais. “Millions of people will face with serious decline in living standards. Especially painful it will be for the most vulnerable, the poorest. This is exactly the category (the population) who lives with no savings, no stocks,” he said.

“As someone rightly said, do not remember who: “the Rich become slightly less rich, the middle class will be a little smaller, but the poor will become very poor.” And that’s the hardest part of the whole story. Therefore, for the world as a whole the impact will be very heavy and very serious political implications for sure — God forbid that without the upheavals of revolutionary character,” he added.

According to him, one of the heaviest blows is an attack on the standard of living in the world as a whole and unemployment.
