According to the newspaper "News", the unemployed spouses of military personnel will receive a financial allowance. In the first place, such a rule will concern women who, together with their military husbands, live in the garrisons of Siberia, the Polar region and the Far East. Also, wives of servicemen engaged in caring for sick children will be able to count on benefits from the Ministry of Defense.
According to the latest data, the amount of the allowance will be (at the moment) 9489 rubles monthly. This is the minimum wage.
In legislative terms, the decision is supported by the adoption of a draft decree "On the size and procedure for paying monthly allowances to spouses of military personnel - citizens who perform military service under a contract, during their stay with spouses in areas where they cannot work in their specialty."
By the way, we are talking not only about women. The norm also applies to men whose wives are servicemen and are sent to serve in that garrison, where there are no jobs at any given civilian specialty at the moment.
