“We signed the direct contracts, with no intermediaries, with the publishing houses,” he stressed.
The school students will receive their books following the federal state standards in education, the head of the ministry added.
“We need 2.5 million [rubles] more for experimental schools. We will try to seek them out in our internal reserves,” Alexander Voronkov added.
