The order of the Russian Federation government that approved the allocation of 220 million roubles between 73 regions was signed by the Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Medvedev.
As stated in the explanatory note, it was the first time such state support was provided to constituent entities of the Russian Federation.
The subsidies were allocated to co-finance expenditure commitments on support of children's and puppet theatres within the state programme "Culture and tourism development" for 2013-2020.
