According to the official, such a condition will increase the price of oil to at least $ 80 per barrel (now it is slightly above $ 50): in this case, the cumulative part will be allocated 2% of premiums, and another 4% will go to insurance.

Otherwise, the Ministry of Finance refuses unfreezing of pension accruals, said Moiseev. Recall that at the moment they are immediately transferred to government on current needs: previously, the Minister of economy of the Russian Federation Anton Siluanov declared, in particular, that the pensions can not be returned as “gone to the Crimea”, and later, according to Deputy Prime Minister Olga Golodets, they immediately began to send payments to current retirees, as other funds in the budget for this was not provided.

Note that the Ministry of economic development of Russia does not expect a sharp rise in oil prices in the coming years: in his baseline forecast, they will fluctuate up to 2020 in the region of 40 dollars per barrel, and “basic plus” in 2019 will rise to $ 55.

While earlier, the MAYOR despite this, he did offer a partial unfreezing of pensions to direct to the funded part of at least 1%.
