United Russia criticizes Kudrin's proposal to raise retirement age
At his Facebook page, the Secretary of the General Council of the United Russia party, Sergey Neverov, criticized a proposal of the Center for Strategic Research of the former Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin on raising the retirement age.
"Kudrin offers is to increase the retirement age for men to 65 and for women to 63 years, starting from 2019. The problem is that the average life expectancy is 65.9 years for men in Russia (and it was a record of 2015 for the country, including the Soviet period.) At the same time, the president repeatedly expressed his opinion about the raising of the retirement age, "he wrote.
