Economists, quoted by RIA “Novosti”, the amount calculated based on the average of the “age of survival”, which is currently 20 years. The younger is now retired, the more money he could get, if it was indexing, and the maximum amount of time would have amounted to 275 thousand, and the lowest 13 thousand.

The last number is the sum of multiplied by 12 months 1,095 rubles, which is just in the middle and had to increase pension. However, this did not happen, and that means that every year pensioners will now lose more than 13 thousand rubles.

Thus, saving in the current year, 286 billion, the government has saved over the next 20 years to 5.7 trillion rubles.

Recall that according to the law of pension in 2016 was supposed to be indexed to inflation, that is, by 12.9%, but in fact they increased by only 4%. The difference is the government has promised to compensate for the payment of 5 thousand rubles at the beginning of next year.

In this case the money will not get the Russians permanently living abroad.
