15 percent of Russians need the help of psychologists.

According to APA's Moscow correspondent, Russian President Vladimir Putin said this at a meeting with the participants of the II Congress of Young Scientists.

Putin said that psychological assistance services in Russia are not yet developed as they should be:

"This issue is still not being given due attention, but it is unfair..."

The Russian President added that he will ask the Cabinet of Ministers to discuss the issue of creating psychological assistance services in the Coordination Council, especially in the current situation.
