The Ministry for North Caucasus Affairs proposed to introduce a resort fee in five Russian regions for the period of 5 years to test such a system. The proposal, according to the press service of the Ministry, quoted by “Interfax”, already supported by representatives of the government and Executive power.

Five test regions should be Stavropol and Krasnodar territory, the Altai Republic (the Agency did not specify the region or Republic), as well as Crimea and Sevastopol. After the test of the five-year period, the fee may be extended to the whole of Russia.
It is noted that the fee should not exceed 150 rubles per day, and this money should be devoted exclusively to the development of resort infrastructure, and not on the needs of the region as a whole.
Two ministries — the Ministry of labor and Ministry of health — proposed additional restrictive measures: in particular, in their opinion, the charge sent to the regions workers will have to pay the employer, and the Russians, who received preferential permits from the collection will need to release.
The bill is expected to be submitted to the government until November 15.
Now, the paper identifies the privileged category, free from collection: we are talking about children under 18 years, disabled and their carers, veterans, heroes of the USSR, Russia and socialist labour, Chernobyl, and traveling to the regions to work or study.
We will remind that earlier the idea of a resort collection was supported by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
