Pension age increase in Russia is not yet discussed at the head-of-government level
Pension age increase in Russia is not yet discussed at the head-of-government level, Prime Minister Mikhail Fradkov told journalists. "Nothing of the kind is on my desk. Nothing new is under discussion at the head-of-government level", he said, commenting on a statement by Gennadi Batanov, chairman of the Russian Pension Fund.. "The problem is poignant. A decision will be binding and has to be thoroughly thought-out", Fradkov noted. Earlier, Batanov said that the pension age threshold may be increased. The head of the Pension Fund noted that "many countries are gradually coming to upping the pension age". "Nothing to be done. We'll also have to handle this problem". "It is a political decision, which has to be agreed upon for being carried out in society", Batanov emphasised. In upping the pension age pensions may be increased, he said. Vice-Premier Alexander Zhukov has also confirmed that the government is not considering the question. "The government is not yet considering questions of increasing the pension age and has not made any proposals", Zhukov told journalists on Wednesday after the State Duma adopted the 2005 draft federal budget in second reading. "Nor, has the Duma made such proposals", added the Duma speaker Boris Gryzlov.
