Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, speaking at the Congress of “United Russia”, told about the planned return to full indexation of pensions, but… next year. The Prime Minister explained that life becomes more expensive, prices are rising, and populist decisions on pensions are even more inflated price race.
“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.
In addition, he promised to achieve indexing and other social payments and benefits, including program netcapital, which Premier said that extended until 2018.
