The government of the Russian Federation is going to increase pensions in the country by 4 percent from February 1, 2016.
This was stated by Russia's Economic Development Minister Alexei Ulyukayev behind the scenes of the International Investment Forum in Sochi.
According to Ulyukayev, it is possible that in the second half of 2016, pensions will be indexed additionally, but only if the budget has additional revenues. As the head of the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade stressed, the principal decisions concerning the budget for the next year were taken on October 1 at a meeting with the Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.

It is opposed by the vice-premier in charge of social policy. According to the social block, pensions should be indexed according to actual inflation.
