Medvedev: we shouldn't get ahead of ourselves with raising of retirement age
The retirement age will be raised in Russia sooner or later, but let's not get ahead of ourselves, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev told Rossiyskaya Gazeta.
According to the head of the government, "life expectancy has increased over the years, so the retirement age is also increasing." "This is an objective process," he noted.
Medvedev said that it was decided to begin this process from the civil service, " those who are mentally prepared for this."
