The volume of state support of animation in Russia in the current year amounted to 430 million rubles, said Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev at a meeting of the government Council on the development of domestic cinematography.

«The animation in the current year received from the Federal budget 430 million rubles,» — said the head of the Cabinet.

Medvedev stated that the Russian animation develops. In 2015, it was allocated a quota of 15% of the total amount of funds that the Ministry of culture allocates to the film industry, and «most have to go, of course, on the children’s animation,» he said.

The Prime Minister reminded that the state Duma has already been submitted to the bills establishing a preferential rate of insurance premiums — 14% — for the Russian producers of entertainment products.

«Specifically focus my attention to it, because all such decisions are taken with fights and difficulties, because it is one thing to support the cinema, another thing to impose the budget as a whole. Therefore, promotion is always a very difficult history, in the discussion with the participation of all my colleagues from both the economic bloc of the government, and Humanities, including the Ministry of culture,» — said Medvedev.
