What will change in the lives of Russians from June 2021
Law on educational activities, rules for refusing "mortgage vacations" and registration of SIM cards on the website of public services
TASS, together with the State Duma of the Russian Federation, presents a selection of important laws and regulations that will start working in June 2021 and will affect many Russians.
A new national standard for informing the population about emergencies will start working
From June 1, the procedure for informing the population through the media and through other channels of information about predicted and emerging emergencies comes into force . GOST defines the rules of conduct in the emergency area, the procedure for reporting the receipt of payments and the restoration of lost documents, and more. Information should not be controversial, but it should be published promptly and regularly to avoid the effect of a vacuum. For example, officials are now obliged to provide the media with operational information from the emergency zone at least four times a day, to carry out photo and video documentation of the situation, rescue and other urgent work in the emergency zone, to take part in the preparation and conduct of press conferences.
The concept of educational activities is introduced
On June 1, a law comes into force that defines the general requirements for the implementation of educational activities. The concept of educational activity is introduced - this is an activity carried out outside the framework of educational programs, aimed, in particular, at the dissemination of knowledge, experience, value attitudes, competence for the purpose of intellectual, spiritual, moral, creative, physical and (or) professional development of a person.
It is prohibited to use educational activities to incite social, racial, national or religious hatred, as well as to induce illegal actions. The law is intended to protect citizens from anti-Russian propaganda.
Subscribers will be obliged to inform the operator of their passport data
On June 1, amendments to the federal law "On Communications" will come into force - they should help to more effectively fight the illegal sale of SIM-cards. Legal entities and individual entrepreneurs acting as subscribers are now obliged to report reliable data of users of corporate numbers to the operator, otherwise they will no longer be served. The new law also imposes on the telecom operator the obligation to check subscriber information and identify fictitious data.
Citizens will be able to "bind" a unique device identifier to an account in the Unified Identification and Authentication System. Then, if the phone is lost, its owner will be able to contact the authorized bodies with a request not to service the device.
The procedure for granting increased pensions for northerners will change
The amount of the pension depends on the area of residence. Accordingly, when assigning payments, the place of registration is taken into account. From June 1, residents of the northern regions are required once a year to personally submit to the FIU a statement confirming their actual place of residence.
A "social taxi" for children and young people will start operating in Moscow
From June 1, a "social taxi" will be launched for children and young people in need of palliative care. Parents of 900 children who are included in the unified city register of patients in need of palliative care will be able to order such a taxi free of charge.
Some conscripts will be exempted from medical examination
From June 6, a medical examination will become optional for those conscripts whose delay is not related to health conditions: for family reasons or in connection with training. In this case, the examination can be carried out at the request of the conscript himself.
Mandatory information is introduced about the reasons for refusal in "mortgage holidays"
Starting from June 6, lenders will be obliged to explain to borrowers the reason for refusing to provide "mortgage vacations". This will avoid unjustified refusals or the imposition by the bank of its debt restructuring programs, which are not so beneficial for borrowers. In case of refusal to change the terms of the loan agreement without reason, borrowers will be able to appeal against the actions of the credit institution in a pre-trial or court order and protect their rights of consumers of financial services.
FSIN employees will have the right to issue a warning
From June 6, FSIN officers will be able to issue an official warning to suspects, accused and convicted persons about the inadmissibility of actions that create conditions for a crime or offense. Prior to that, the authority to issue such a warning was vested in police officers, prosecutors and the FSB.
Control over international road transport will be tightened
From June 7, foreign carriers who have not paid the fine for traffic violations on the territory of Russia will be obliged to pay it at the border. They will be given three hours to pay.
The comprehensive Russian language exam for foreigners will change
From June 7, a unified procedure for a comprehensive examination in the Russian language, the history of Russia and the fundamentals of the legislation of the Russian Federation for foreigners is being introduced . Requirements for the minimum level of knowledge differ depending on the purpose of stay in the country.
The movement of trucks in Moscow will be limited
From June 15, trucks weighing 3.5 tons or more will not be able to stay within the Moscow Ring Road; fixed routes and the division of passes into day and night are also being introduced .
Beekeeping in Russia will be supported in a new way
On June 29, the law begins to work, which regulates the mechanisms of state support for beekeeping. In particular, it is aimed at combating counterfeiting and preventing the poisoning of bees with agrochemicals and pesticides. For example, now agricultural enterprises are obliged to notify residents of settlements within a radius of seven kilometers three days before the land cultivation with agrochemicals.
