The Russians who took part in the special operation in Ukraine and Donbass will be able to undergo free training or receive additional professional education in the specialties most in demand in the country. The decree on the right to free retraining was signed by Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin. About this on Tuesday, May 2, informs government press office.

The decision on the opportunity to receive free training also applies to family members of the participants in the special operation who died while performing tasks as part of hostilities. An application for training can be made on the Job of Russia portal.

This support measure will be implemented by the Institute for the Development of Vocational Education, the Russian Academy of National Economy and Public Administration, and Tomsk State University. The government will reimburse the costs of these educational institutions through grants.

In addition, employers will receive subsidies for the employment of participants in the special operation who have undergone training or retraining. Their size will be equal to three minimum wages, increased by the district coefficient, the amount of insurance premiums and multiplied by the number of employed. To receive state support, the employer must contact the employment center to select specialists for existing vacancies and send an application to the Social Fund. All this can be done remotely – through the Job of Russia portal and through the Social Insurance system.

At the end of December, Mishustin signed free retraining order citizens in 2023 and 2024. Unemployed residents of the Russian Federation, employees at risk of dismissal, certain categories of citizens under 35, women with small children, people over 50, as well as refugees from Ukraine are eligible for such a measure of support.
