Peskov: it's incorrect to state growth of poverty in Russia

It is impossible to speak about the growth of poverty in Russia, although the number of people whose income has decreased is on the rise, Russian Presidential spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said, while commenting on the statement by the head of the Accounts Chamber Alexei Kudrin about the increase in the number of Russians living below the poverty line.

"We have a number of people whose incomes have decreased, slightly increased due to the external economic situation and a number of processes that occur in the Russian economy," TASS cited him as saying.

"At the same time, it’s impossible to talk about the growth of poverty in this case," the Russian Presidential spokesperson concluded.
