An increase in salaries for law enforcement officers, free vaccinations in private clinics, and the return of technical inspection,
We remind you of the main changes in the laws in Russia from October 1, 2021
WILL INCREASE SALARIES FOR SILOVIK AND “NOT MAY” BUDGETS
From October 1, salaries of some Russians will increase. The salaries of servicemen – contract and conscripts will increase by 3.7%. The same applies to police officers, customs officers, firefighters, employees of the penal system, and some employees of the Courier Service.
Also, the salaries of a number of state employees will be indexed – from those who do not fall under the “May decrees” (“May” increases are received from January 1). These are, in particular, employees of social protection bodies, Rospotrebnadzor, hydrometeorological service, and others. The amount of the increase will be different, depending on the region and profession, but on average not less than about 4%.
MILITARY PENSIONS WILL INCREASE ALSO
Along with the increase in military salaries, the pensions of retired military personnel are also increasing – by the same 3.7%. It is assumed that about 2.6 million military pensioners will receive an increase in October.
FOR FREE VACCINATION – IN A PRIVATE CLINIC
Vaccinations included in the national vaccination calendar, from October 1, can be done free of charge not only in a public medical institution but also in a private clinic. This is one of the measures that should contribute to the greater availability of quality medical services.
“WORLD” FOR CHILDREN’S PAYMENTS
First and second child benefits for low-income families from October will only be transferred to Mir cards. Almost all other types of payments from the state can already be received only on this card – a national, not a foreign payment system.
Now we are talking about benefits to which families are entitled, where after January 1, 2018, the first or second child was born and where the income per family member (taking into account the baby born) is not more than twice the subsistence level in the region.
If there is no Mir card, it must be urgently issued at any bank. And inform the new details to social protection (if the first child) or to the Pension Fund department (if the second child). Alternatively, you can receive payment in cash or to a bank account to which no card is tied.
MAINTENANCE RETURNS BUT NOT FOR ALL
The next deferral ends on October 1for the passage of MOT for cars, the validity of the diagnostic cards for which ended after February 1, 2021. Let’s remind the background: from March 1, 2021, the technical inspection reform was supposed to begin. But it turned out that the technical points were not ready for it, and there was also a coronavirus. Therefore, the drivers were given indulgence. The term of the diagnostic cards, which ended from February 1 to September 1, was extended. Now, in theory, those whose cards were valid until February, March and April should pass MOT. For those whose diagnostics ended later, as experts explain, six months should be counted – this will be a new date, until which the card is still valid. Yes, everything is so confusing. And one moment. All this applies specifically to drivers of passenger cars who use them for personal purposes. Taxis must be inspected, as are trucks and buses. Cars,
True, there are no significant penalties for the absence of a diagnostic card for car drivers now. From August 22, you can buy OSAGO without showing “diagnostics”. An administrative fine in the amount of 2,000 rubles, as they threaten, will appear on March 1, 2022. But it is possible that the law on simplification of the vehicle inspection system promised by United Russia will be adopted earlier – in some cases, it will become voluntary.
In the meantime, problems can be faced mainly by drivers who caused an accident on a faulty car. If there is no valid diagnostic card, the insurance company may require that the perpetrator of the accident reimburse the CMTPL payments to the injured party.
TELEVISION ON THE INTERNET – FOR FREE
From October 1, free access to television channels of the first and second multiplex on the Internet is introduced. You could watch TV programs for free on your computer or phone before. But now it is not just “possible” – you have no right to take a fee. What channels are we talking about? There are about 20 of them, including all federal ones. In particular, Channel One, Russia-1, REN TV, STS, TNT. In fact, we are talking about the fact that the main television channels can be watched anywhere – even if traditionally “on TV”, even on your smartphone – on equal terms. Roskomnadzor will establish the necessary software requirements.
