The corresponding order of the Government of the Russian Federation was published on Monday on the official portal of legal information. "Allocate a budgetary allocation from the federal budget in 2020 to pay a one-time voluntary earmarked contribution to the World Health Organization to implement measures to combat new coronavirus infection in the amount of up to $ 1 million", the document says.

Earlier, WHO positively assessed the measures introduced by the Russian authorities against the spread of coronavirus in the country.
