Besides that, we are expanding the list of territories in which such a payment will be used to attract specialists, ” the First Deputy Governor stressed.

Thus, the total number of municipalities participating in the project has grown to 12, including the largest cities, such as Khanty-Mansiysk, Nefteyugansk, Nizhnevartovsk and Surgut.

In total, 48 million rubles are allocated for these measures of support withi the Okrug’s healthcare development program.
