The Chairman of Committee of Council of Federation Elena Mizulina has supported the offer to create in Russia a maintenance Fund.

Earlier, the Chairman of the Duma Committee on family, women and children Tamara Pletneva called for the creation of the state alimony Fund.

«People are waiting for its formation. According to experts, in Russia there are 2 million children who are eligible for alimony, but they actually don’t get it» — quoted by Mizulina’s press service.

The Senator recalled that the idea of creation in Russia of special maintenance Fund for almost a decade. According to her, government has in the past opposed this initiative, «since the establishment of the alimony Fund would require significant financial resources».

«I really hope that the state Duma will be able to convince the government that such a Fund needed,» she said.
