New ‘macho’ law in Russia planned to give state handouts to men who have children with more than one woman


Men who have children by different women should be paid a special allowance by the state for increasing the population, a Russian MP claimed.

A new ‘Macho Law’ was proposed by Valery Seleznev, who believes that marriage for life is outdated.

Mr Seleznev said: ‘Let’s stimulate productive men so they can receive paternity capital and use it, for example, for alimony payments.’
