According to him, more than 80% of families spend maternity capital to improve their living conditions.

Earlier, the ombudsman for the rights of the child in the Republic of Tatarstan, the founder of the National Parents' Committee, Irina Volynets, proposed to prohibit the seizure of housing purchased with maternity capital for debts.
