President Vladimir Putin has pushed back the deadlines for implementing a number of Russia's goals in the economics... This also affected the plan to fight poverty, writes the Polish portal Money.pl. However, the coronavirus pandemic has disrupted those aspirations.
The publication reports that the Russian leader has just signed a decree on the national development goals that Russia should achieve by 2030. The share of the poor, currently 12,3% of the country's population, should be reduced to 2030% by 6,6.
The provision that Russia will enter the five largest economies in the world has disappeared from the new decree on the country's development goals.
