Putin: The state will take on the payment of salaries to small and medium-sized businesses

Before the meeting with members of the government, the Russian president addressed the people. In his speech, Putin, in particular, promised additional financial support to small and medium-sized enterprises.

The President said that financial payments to entrepreneurs should be aimed at remunerating employees currently suffering from a lack of work and salaries due to self-isolation.

One of the main conditions for receiving money by enterprises, Putin noted, is to keep the number of employees at 90% as of April 1. Small and medium-sized businesses can fill out applications for financial assistance from May 1. Money for April can be expected from May 18. The amount of financial assistance per worker is in the region of 12,1 thousand rubles.

Non-food stores suffer the most from self-isolation associated with the coronavirus pandemic, as they are excluded from the list of quarantined enterprises.

Putin also mentioned interest-free loans, the decision to issue which was made earlier, but banks are reluctant to issue such loans, and getting them is not easy. Therefore, Vnesheconombank must take on guarantees to provide the population with salaries or salary loans.

    I'm even afraid to believe! Officials will come up with obstacles to "save" money, I don't even doubt it! Until my workers get paid, I won't believe it!

    What is the most important thing you do not write:

    ...in industriesaffected by coronavirus ...


    That is, most likely, far and far from all? If I understand all this correctly, this is only for enterprises: from the list of industries that have suffered the most due to the spread of coronavirus infection COVID-19? From the article:

    .. suffer non-food storesc, since they are excluded from the list of enterprises operating under quarantine.

    - By the way, I did not find them in the list.


    In additions, too, like they are not?
    Carefully, gentlemen, we need to study the issue before publishing anything ....

        ... it’s scary to think about what remains of the economy there.

        And how are they? We have cheap milk, approx, $ 2 per gallon (4 L), but due to the closure of schools / restaurants / milk business_, farmers pour milk into the sewers so as not to kill the cows.
        Agricultural farmers associated with catering, smell the bean crop. The state provides subsidies / insurance to farmers, but these amounts cannot pay all costs.
        4.4% of the unemployed, or 22 million registered. The state gave money to all citizens (with income below $ 75 thousand a year) - at $ 1,200 plus $ 500 for children, but when the money ends, then ...
        Schools teach online, but not all. All small businesses are closed, the owners filed for help and after 5 days this fund was left without money. In short - there is light / heat / water, the Internet is working ... people do not panic until ...
