The list of categories of citizens who are allowed free online access to audiobooks and textbooks has been expanded
Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin signed a decree expanding the list of categories of citizens with health problems who have the right to free access to audio books, magazines, educational materials on the websites of libraries, as well as scientific and public organizations, says on the government website.

The text of the decision will be published later.
Provide online access to books, magazines and educational literature, in particular, specialized libraries for the blind and visually impaired, public libraries with departments for serving people with disabilities, as well as libraries of educational and scientific organizations where such citizens study or teach, the message says.
