Health ministry preparing aid proposals for victims of metro explosions
MOSCOW. March 29 (Interfax) - The size of aid for the families of those killed and injured in the Moscow metro attacks will most likely be the same as the sums received by the victims of the terrorist attack on the Nevsky Express train.
"We are now carrying out final checks on the lists and figures. I think the aid must be the same in size as the one allocated in the case of the Nevsky Express terror attack," Health Care and Social Development Minister Tatyana Golikova said at meeting held via video link by Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.
The Health Care and Social Development Ministry, along with the Emergency Situations Ministry and the Moscow Government, have prepared a draft government decree allocating aid to the relatives of those killed and injured in the Moscow metro terrorist attacks, she said.
The Moscow authorities will provide material aid to the families of those killed and injured in the metro explosions, with the former group entitled to 150,000 rubles and the latter to 50,000 rubles, a source in the city administration told Interfax earlier.
