Subsidies to SMEs and SONKOs for personal protective equipment will allow resuming operation more quickly. This was stated on the 29th of June by the Russian Minister of Economic Development Maxim Reshetnikov at the meeting with the Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin concerning the situation on the labor market.
“We expect that this will also be an important step for entrepreneurs to resume their activities more quickly,” the Minister said. “This is [money] for the implementation of measures related to personal protective equipment, additional purchasing of some equipment to meet sanitary requirements,” he added specifying for information that 20 bln rubles were allocated for this purpose. These funds will support 1.5 mln jobs.

The subsidies will be provided to the enterprises whose activities involve close and long-term contact between the personnel and visitors (customers), and, accordingly, significant costs to ensure preventive measures.

The amount of the subsidy will be defined as the sum of funds for expenses for preventive and disinfection measures: the initial amount of 15 ths rubles and the current amount calculated as a product of 6.5 ths rubles per the number of employees in May 2020. Sole proprietors without employees will receive 15 ths rubles.
