Medvedev: Pension reform is painful, but necessary
The head of the Russian government, Dmitry Medvedev, said that the pension reform is necessary for the country, and the government could not do otherwise, RIA reports News.
Medvedev noted that pension reform is now the most difficult issue that has caused many discussions. Such changes in the pension legislation of people are not at all encouraging, even if a person wants to work further. Even in the government, these reforms do not please anyone, but they are necessary. He stressed that the Russian pension system in its current state is in a "difficult state" because of the ratio of the number of pensioners to the working population. Today, the ratio approaches one-to-one level, and this "threatens to completely break the pension system."
Medvedev compared the pension reform with bitter medicine, which is necessary to drink to get rid of the disease, even though the person does not want it, but if you do not drink it, then everything can end in tragedy.
The Prime Minister drew attention to the fact that currently the law on pension reform is under consideration in the State Duma, where there is a wide discussion regarding it. Medvedev did not rule out that in his final version the law would be radically different from the original version. At the same time, he said that Russian President Vladimir Putin had not yet spoken on this issue.
