The government of the Russian Federation has canceled the gas fee for Eternal Flame memorials. This was reported on the website of the Cabinet.
“Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin signed a resolution that fixes the zeroing of fees for gas supplies, as well as services for its transportation through gas distribution networks for the Eternal Flame and the Flame of Memory at military graves and memorials. The decision was made as part of the presidential order. This task was set by the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin in February 2022 following one of the meetings with members of the government,” says in the message.
The law establishing the procedure for the free supply of gas for the Eternal Lights and the Lights of Memory was adopted by the State Duma on April 20, approved by the Federation Council on April 26 and signed by the President of the Russian Federation on May 1. The new regulation reinforces this principle.
“Resetting the fee will prevent a situation where the fire, lit in honor of the fallen defenders of the Fatherland, is extinguished due to non-payment or delay in payment for fuel. The register of Eternal Lights and Lights of Memory at military graves and memorial structures outside such burials will be maintained by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, ”the message adds.
Recall that in January, the First Vice Speaker of the Federation Council, Secretary of the General Council of United Russia Andrei Turchak in January at a meeting between Putin and government members proposed introducing a zero payment for gas supplied to memorials with Eternal Flame. According to him, at that time the order of work of the Eternal Lights was not clearly defined. As a result, there have been cases where due to debts or delays in payment by local authorities, such lights have been extinguished. Turchak drew attention to the need for a systematic solution to the problem.
