Mikhail Men said that the Russian government decided not to divide mortgagers by currency of the mortgage.
“The criteria will be identical for both categories. Right now we are working to develop these criteria,” the minister of construction said.
He announced that the state aid will be provided only for one year and will not exceed 40% of the total mortgage amount.
“During one year, we will be giving people an opportunity to restore their credit worthiness,” Mikhail Men noted.
He stressed that this budget assistance program will allow support of 35,000 families.
