“We understand that life gets more expensive. Rising prices for medicines, products, although we are trying their maximum to keep”, – said the Chairman of the Russian government. Medvedev said in this connection that the decision on partial indexation of pensions was unpopular, but the only possible one. “Populist decisions would have led to a surge in inflation (i.e. to a further increase in the cents – ed.)”, – explained Dmitry Medvedev.

Thus, as reports “Interfax”, it is suggested to restore the indexation of pensions in full, on the basis of the inflation of the previous year, with the following 2017.
