On December 10, a decree of the government of the Russian Federation on special payments to students for undergoing “practical training in the context of the spread of a new coronavirus infection” came into force. Payments in the amount of 10 thousand rubles a month were approved for university students, residents and graduate students, and 7 thousand rubles each – for students who receive secondary vocational education in full-time.
