Labor Minister promised to “only increase” of pensions in Russia

The Minister of labour and social protection RF Maxim Topilin denied the reduction of pensions in the next three years is 2.7%. According to him, the pension in Russia will only grow.

“The reduction of pensions is not, we only have the growth of pensions”, — said Topilin RNS.

In a press-service of the Ministry of labour RNS said that talking about the reduction of pensions is not quite correct.
