Vladimir Putin signed a list of instructions following the State Council Presidium meeting on family, motherhood, and childhood policy on February 17, 2014.

The Government, in its work on drafting the family policy concept and implementation plan, has been instructed to develop a family-oriented state information policy that promotes stronger family relations based on families with children, take measures to reduce poverty among families with children, including by creating greater opportunities to combine professional and family responsibilities for women with children under the age of three and parents of children with disabilities, develop pre-schools and day care services, and put in place social support measures for families with children. 

The Government has also been instructed to review how effectively the action plan for implementing the 2012–2014 National Children’s Interests Action Strategy has been carried out, and draft a new action plan for 2015–2017. 

Instructions issued jointly to the Government and regional executive authorities concern, in particular, raising the quality of federal and regional television and radio programmes for children and developing the children’s film industry.
