The following documents have been added to the previous list thereof to be submitted for receiving the cited payments: an extract from the Comprehensive State Register of Rights to Immovable Property and Transactions Therewith, an extract from the house register and a copy of the financial personal account received at the place of residence.
An application for making supplementary payments shall be filed by a participant before he/she is deleted from the muster-roll of the military unit, while a family member thereof shall do it after deleting a participant from the said list in connection with his/her loss of life or death, declaring him/her missing or dead. With this, an applicant shall be held liable for the reliability of the data cited in the application (in annexes thereto). The federal bodies where there is military service shall report on the decision adopted in respect of making the said payments on a monthly basis (before the 10th day of a month) to the federal body, which provides for functioning of the accumulation mortgage system of providing housing to military servicemen, in the way coordinated with it.

Order of the Ministry of Public Health and Social Development of the Russian Federation No. 194n of April 24, 2008 on Approving Medical Criteria for Assessing the Gravity of Harm Inflicted upon Human Health

The gravity of harm inflicted upon human health shall be assessed on the basis of qualification indicia and medical criteria while carrying out a forensic medical examination in the course of civil, administrative and criminal court proceedings. Medical criteria shall be used for assessing injuries detected in the course of a forensic medical examination of a living person's face, examination of a corpse and parts thereof, as well as when carrying out forensic medical examinations on the basis of materials of a case-file and medical documents.
As medical criteria for qualification indicia in respect of grave harm inflicted upon human health shall be deemed, for instance, harm caused to health which is dangerous for human life (major injuries of important organs or loss thereof) and full professional disablement, in respect of medium-gravity harm caused to health - temporary disablement, prolonged impairment of health; in respect of minor harm caused to health - a short-term impairment of health. Surface injuries, in particular frets, sores, soft tissue bruises and other injuries which do not cause a short-term impairment of healt or a minor prolonged general disablement shall be regarded as injuries that have not caused harm to human health.
To assess the degree of gravity of harm caused to human health it is sufficient to have one medical criterion available, but if, for instance, multiple injuries mutually aggravate each other, the degree of harm gravity caused to human health shall be assessed on the basis of the totality thereof. If it is not possible to assess the essence of harm caused to human health, the result of inflicted harm is unclear, required medical documents are not available or a person has not appeared for a forensic medical expert examination, the degree of gravity of harm caused to human health shall not be assessed.
The Table of Percentage of Prolonged General Disablement as a Result of Various Traumas, Poisoning and Other Externally Caused Consequences is given therein which is also used in forensic assessment of the degree of gravity of harm inflicted upon human health on the basis of the qualification indicia and medical criterion of prolonged general disability.
