The statements of the Minister of Saratov on the subsistence minimum in 3,5 thousand roubles are awkward and outrageous attempt to justify the current situation in the country; officials with such beliefs are unlikely to be able to cope with its main task of development of social sphere, said the head of the Duma Committee on labour and social policy Yaroslav Nilov.

Earlier in the Youtube video appeared, depicting the dispute of the Minister of labour, employment and migration of the Saratov region Natalia Sokolova and the Deputy of regional Duma from the Communist party Nikolai Bondarenko in the building of the regional Parliament about what amount will be sufficient for life during the month. The official expressed the opinion that 3.5 thousand rubles will be enough «for minimum physiological needs.» Later in the press service of the Governor of the region RIA Novosti reported that Sokolov was dismissed.

«If this is an attempt to justify the current situation, with the understanding that she’s crazy, try a very embarrassing, awkward and outrageous. We’ve had governors who invited people to walk on mushrooms, pick berries, and then sell the collected markets to «live with dignity». And where are the governors? But if it’s sincere beliefs of a regional official, the official, whose main task is the development of the social sphere and social protection of citizens, including the internal beliefs are unlikely to be able to handle it» — quoted nil his press service.

He explained that the living wage is calculated based on the cost of the consumer basket. Half of it is the cost of food, which is enshrined in law, the remaining 50% are divided equally between non-food goods and services. This structure and the content of the basket has not changed for many years, said the Deputy, however, the government is making the necessary changes to «freeze» all aspects of the consumer basket.

«Our Committee regularly considers initiatives to improve the current situation. And now the government, understanding the inevitability and the objective necessity of the adjustments in this direction for the realization of the theses of President to combat poverty and increase the welfare of citizens, has established a special working group. Its purpose is to propose a model that allows you to re-examine the basket, its content, increase the value, to thereby increase living wage and directly dependent of the minimum wage,» — said the MP.

Thus, according to Nilov, at the Federal level, the current problem is understood, shared and understand, looking for solutions. «So why is the Federal government has attended to the problem and understand that the cost of living, more precisely, the cost of minuscule need to revise upwards, and at the regional level continue to believe that everything is in order? While a rhetorical question,» — said the head of the Duma Committee.
