The situation when the Pension Fund does not solve the problem of the growth of pensions and on average 20-25 thousand rubles, and the Federal budget will not be able to provide a solution to breakthrough challenges in any of the sectors — education, health, social services and infrastructure.Vyacheslav Waltenspiel Of The State Duma
During a speech before the residents of the Factory district of Saratov August 11, Vyacheslav Volodin did not rule out that Russia may abolish the state pension, unless the pension reform. The speaker called the issue of raising the retirement age “hardest”.
On 16 June the government introduced a bill to pension reform under which the retirement age of Russians is proposed to increase to 65 years for men (from 60) and 63 years for women (from 55 years). Contrary to discontent of citizens, July 19 the state Duma adopted the draft law in the first reading. After that, the President of Russia Vladimir Putin said that he does not like none of the government’s proposed reform options. This has provoked a discussion about the possible mitigation of the parameters of the bill.
