The President stressed that the decision on pensions is a difficult, but necessary, urged Russians to be sensitive to future innovations.

Meanwhile, Putin proposed a number of measures that will allow mitigate their decisions. In particular, according to him, the age of retirement for women in Russia must be 60 years instead of the government 63, 65 for men. Other plans include a large mother should have the right of early retirement, the terms of pensions for the indigenous peoples of the North should be retained, unemployment benefits for those approaching retirement age is increased, and for the dismissal before retirement, you need to enter administrative and even criminal liability. Proposals to change the pension system was designed as amendments to the law submitted by the President for consideration in the state Duma on 6 September, the same day the «United Russia» also brought in GD the first set of amendments.

Now the standard age of retirement in Russia is 60 and 55 years for men and women respectively prescribed by law the retirement age established in the 1930-ies. The question of raising the retirement age has been discussed for quite some time. The need for this is caused by growing life expectancy and the inability to provide a decent pension in circumstances when the number of employees in the country decreases, while the number of pensioners, by contrast, is growing. Today, in most countries the retirement age is 60-65 years.
