Senators submit to the State Duma a bill on credit holidays for participants in a special military operation in Ukraine. This was reported by Interfax with reference to the press service of the Federation Council.
The press service said that the document was submitted by First Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Andrei Turchak, Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Nikolai Zhuravlev, as well as Senators Andrei Klishas and Irina Rukavishnikova.
According to Zhuravlev, the draft law established the procedure for granting a grace period to borrowers, during which the fulfillment of loan obligations will be suspended for a period determined by the borrower, or the loan payment will be reduced for this period.
According to the document, the creditor must consider the claim within five days. If the borrower does not receive a response within ten days, the grace period will be set automatically “from the date of the request or from the date specified in it.”
Also, in the event of the death (or injury) of the borrower during military service, the draft law provides for the termination of obligations both under his loan agreements and under the agreements of persons who are dependent on him.
Recall that on September 21, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on partial mobilization. As Minister of Defense Sergei Shoigu clarified, it is planned to call up 300 thousand people, which is 1.1% of the mobilization reserve.
