The Secretary General Council of “United Russia” Sergey Neverov has criticized the proposals of the experts of the center Alexei Kudrin on creating a “reasonable standard of living for pensioners”. The idea of raising the retirement age Neverov called “saving the dead”.
The Secretary of the General Council of the party “United Russia” Sergey Neverov has criticized the proposals of the Centre for strategic developments (TSSR) ex-Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin’s pension reform.
“That’s what Kudrin proposes to increase from 2019 the retirement age for men to 65 years to 63 years for women. Only 65.9 years is the average life expectancy for men in Russia (and this despite the fact that in 2015 it was a record of the country in history, including the Soviet period),” — wrote on may 6, Neverov on his page in Facebook.
He recalled that the Russian President has repeatedly stressed that the question of raising the retirement age is a very sensitive, delicate, requires a leisurely approach.
“But Kudrin, certainly, the pension is not needed, it and without great cost,” — said Neverov. In his opinion, Kudrin proposed strategy represents savings “due to the fact that people long to retire.” “Saving the dead” — concludes Alex.
Last Friday, the newspaper “Vedomosti” with reference to the three Federal officials, reported that the materials strategy-2035 prepared by the CSR Kudrin, contained proposals on the reform of the pension system. According to the authors, proposals should provide a “socially acceptable standard of living for pensioners”. One of the measures — raising the retirement age for women to 63 years and for men up to 65 years.
