Federal government sends money to organise Chechen children's rest

The government of Russia has sent compulsory social insurance funds to a total of 150 million roubles (1 US dollar = more than 32 roubles) to organise rest and recreation of children within 6-12 years of age living in the Chechen Republic.

As the government information department said, Prime Minister Mikhail Kasyanov signed a respective ordinance on Tuesday.

According to the document, the funds are sent, in particular, to pay for vouchers to children's sanatoria working all year round and to countryside summer health-building camps for children open during school vacations.

Russia's Ministry for Foreign Affairs is seriously concerned about the state of health of former Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia. Sergei Skrypal's niece, Victoria Skripal, said that her uncle had already died.
