 The Communist Party of the Russian Federation has submitted to the State Duma a draft on the return of the previous retirement age

The explanatory note to the document mentions the old age threshold.

A group of Communist Party deputies in the State Duma and parliamentarian Vasily Ikonnikov sent a draft to the State Duma on the return of the previous retirement age.

According to the idea of the authors of the document, the changes should come into force on January 1 next year.

According to TASS, the text of the document declares the return of the age of appointment of an old-age insurance pension for men & #8211; at 60 years, women & #8211; 55.

The authors believe that the increase in the retirement age, which was announced in 2018, was not necessary, but it is necessary to improve the mechanism of the pension system itself in terms of financial support. For example, the developers offer to replenish it with the help of new taxes.

The document says that Russia does not need an increase in workers, especially since citizens who are in the pre-retirement age report a deterioration in their health. In addition, since 2018, the burden on the Social Insurance Fund has been growing.

The document states that the higher the retirement age, the more Russians will ask for disability.

In addition, according to the explanatory note to the document, if the age does not return to its previous course, the risk of unemployed young people will increase.

Recall that at the beginning of the summer, the State Duma Committee on Labor said that the increase in the retirement age and the reduction in the amount of payments are not discussed. Thus, the head of the committee, Yaroslav Nilov, said that the pension reform of 2018 is in a transitional stage.

A member of the labor Committee Mikhail Tarasenko focused on the dependence of the retirement age on labor productivity.

He noted that, most likely, it will be necessary not to raise the age, but to think in the opposite direction. The reason is the excess labor force that will arise due to robotization and automation of production.

As Topnews wrote, back in April of this year, the FIU reminded that some Russians will be able to retire early, already in 2021. So, such a right can be used by Russians who were born in 1965 and are mothers of four children.

In addition, from 2023, Russian women & # 8211; mothers of three children who were engaged in their upbringing until the age of eight will be able to retire at 57.

Russians who have given birth to at least five children will be able to go on vacation at 50.

Also, an early pension can be assigned to Russians with work experience of men & #8211; 42 years, women & #8211; 37. And residents of the Far North have received the right to early retirement, for them the age comes 5 years earlier than the general rules, if they have at least 15 years of work experience.

Finally, one of the parents can retire early in those families where there is a disabled child who has not reached the age of eight, as well as Russians who have been guardians of disabled people since childhood.


The Parliament announced a “pirate” way to stop the Nord Stream-2

 The Parliament announced the

Deputy Oleg Voloshin predicted further events after the” conflict ” of the United States and Germany.

The deputy of the Ukrainian Rada Oleg Voloshin told the media that the country can count on only one real way to block the Nord Stream -2 gas pipeline.

Speaking on the NewsOne TV channel, the politician focused on the fact that it is possible to achieve success in this only if there is a huge gap between the United States and Germany.

He explained that the United States will have to “fight hard” with Berlin, and simultaneously punish German companies with sanctions.

However, these restrictions should be extraterritorial in nature, since Berlin’s behavior does not directly affect the interests of the United States.

& #8220;We don’t like it, that’s why we are punishing you, ” Voloshin voiced this position.

He also suggested that such a scenario would have serious consequences for the entire European community, because the United States would demonstrate the possibility of repeating it with another country.

If America does not like what is happening in France or Italy, then it is able to do the same.

“This is pure piracy,” the deputy believes.

Earlier, Topnews wrote that the Ukrainian president called & #8220;joint venture-2” “flash piano & #8221; in the hands of Russia.


The State Duma proposed to raise the minimum wage to 20,000 rubles

 The State Duma proposed to raise the minimum wage to 20,000 rubles

A number of parliamentarians were skeptical about the LDPR initiative.

On August 11, the deputy group of the State Duma of the LDPR faction, including parliamentarian Sergei Leonov, intend to propose to the lower house of parliament a bill to increase the minimum wage to 20,000 rubles per month.

According to the head of the Committee on Labor and Veterans ‘Affairs Yaroslav Nilov in the Telegram channel, according to the authors’ idea, the changes should come into force on January 1 next year.

The document says that the source for spending on raising the minimum wage can be funds from the National Welfare Fund, which has 13.5 trillion rubles as of January 1 of this year.

The goal of the project, as follows from the explanatory note, is to help the most vulnerable categories of Russians.

According to them, the low level of the minimum wage leads to an extensive shadow economy, the working poor, corruption and stratification of the population.

The developers stated that the minimum wage even in the developing countries of Asia and Europe is twice as high as the Russian minimum wage.

In response to the proposal, State Duma deputy Adalbi Shkhagoshev said that at the moment the increase in the minimum wage is unrealistic.

He believes that such changes require waiting for the moment when the project is submitted for consideration, and it will be considered by the fresh composition of the State Duma.

“I want to believe that this initiative has been carefully developed and is not related to the elections, because we are talking about very serious figures, “Shkhagoshev commented on the initiative to Izvestia.

According to RBC, the minimum wage from January 1 of this year is 12,792 rubles, the subsistence minimum, which this year was set immediately for 12 months, is 11,653.

In addition, the Russian government has decided to raise the minimum wage to 13,617 rubles from 2022.

The Ministry of Labor, in turn, reported that from 2022 the subsistence minimum for able-bodied Russians will be 13,026 rubles, children — 11,592, pensioners — 10,277.

Earlier, Topnews wrote that at the end of 2020, the methodology for calculating the minimum wage was changed.


In Russia, the appearance of a tax on meat was allowed

 Russia has allowed the appearance of a tax on meat

Experts believe that curbing climate change will require such a global measure.

Dmitry Peskov, the special Representative of the President of Russia for digital and technological development, said that a new tax may appear in Russia.

The expert called the reason for climate change, which will affect the quality of the product produced. Global measures will be required to contain them, he believes.

As quoted by the TASS expert, Peskov believes that such an accounting policy, which marks the hydrocarbon footprint, may also affect Russian livestock production.

He predicted that in the next few years, producers will be & # 8220;loudly indignant”, and then the authorities will have to go to the introduction of a tax on meat. Under the influence of the climate agenda, the sphere itself will change, new technologies will appear in Russian animal husbandry.

The media reports that earlier the introduction of a tax on meat was proposed by the company Beyond Meat. The founder of the company, Ethan Brown, believes that the measures will force people to eat less of it.

According to the idea of the entrepreneur, “piguviansky” tax should be directed to meat of animal origin. It will be expressed in receiving payments from enterprises that bring a negative effect to society in the course of their activities.

And developing countries should be forced to invest in the production of a product from vegetable protein.

As Topnews wrote earlier, WHO was going to equate meat with carcinogens, along with cigarettes and arsenic.

He stressed that against the background of the upcoming significant reduction in gas transit through Ukraine, Kiev may not only lose economic benefits, but also lose access to an energy source altogether.

Earlier, topNews wrote that the President of Ukraine, Vladimir Zelensky, spoke about the Nord Stream-2. He called the gas pipeline a trump card in the hands of the Russian leadership.

The political scientist advised Ukraine to prepare to “crawl on its knees” to Russia for gas

The political scientist advised Ukraine to

The expert is sure that Ukrainians can remain without natural gas even if part of the transit is preserved.

The issue of the probable termination of gas transit through the territory of Ukraine in connection with the launch of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline has long been a sore topic for the political leadership of Nezalezhnaya.

Against this background, political scientist Dmitry Korneychuk shared his opinion about the prospects for the development of Ukraine due to the possible termination of gas supply through Ukrainian territory.

In an interview on the NewsOne channel, he admitted that there may be a gas shortage in Ukraine. He recommended that Ukrainians “crawl on their knees” to the Russian Federation to get fuel.

The political scientist believes that Ukrainians risk being left without natural gas, even if transit remains in the amount of 15-20 billion cubic meters.

According to Korneychuk, Ukraine has been buying gas through Europe for six years, but in fact it is an oversold Russian fuel.

“As a result, everything will end in a couple of years with such a thing: we will almost crawl on our knees to negotiate with Moscow to leave us at least some gas transit, ”, & # 8211; said the political scientist.

He stressed that Ukraine may be left without gas, but the official authorities do not talk about this and are blatantly deceiving.

According to the expert, in the event of a decrease in gas transit by Russia to the minimum values, Ukrainians will lose gas and the heating season.

Earlier, topNews wrote that the head of the Ministry of Natural Resources reported on oil and gas reserves in Russia.

He said how long these natural resources will last.


The Central Bank announced the sharpest increase in the key rate since 2014

 The Central Bank announced the sharpest increase in the key rate since 2014

The regulator will increase it to 6.5%.

The central bank announced its decision to raise the key rate immediately to 6.5%, by one percentage point, as a result, the growth is recognized by experts as the highest since 2014.

Recall that then the Central Bank, against the background of the devaluation of the ruble and the growth of inflation, increased it from 10.5 to 17%.

The same applies to the inflation forecast, which was 5.7-6.2% at the end of 2021, according to the Central Bank’s website.

At the same time, it is predicted that the price growth will return to the pre-pandemic level, to 4 -4.5% only next year.

Analysts of the Central Bank note that the return of the Russian economy in the second quarter of the year to the level that was demonstrated before the outbreak of the epidemic led to a gap between output and growing demand.

This, in turn, affected the upward deviation of inflation from the target of 4%, and the slowdown in the recession.

The regulator’s statement says that the Central Bank assumes a further increase in the rate. The expediency of such decisions will be evaluated at the next meeting of the Board of Directors.

Recall, as RBC wrote, earlier market analysts predicted an increase in the key rate, which was fixed at the level of 0.5 & # 8211; 1 point. The most accurate forecast was given by Bloomberg, assuming that the growth will be 1 percentage point, which happened.

It is known that in June, the price increase in Russia amounted to 6.5%, which was the highest value since 2016. So, for example, compared to May, potatoes increased in price by 20.3%, building materials by 23.9%.

In July, growth slowed down, which is why Rosstat reported deflation of 0.01%.

Earlier, Topnews wrote that in the spring of last year, Russian banks announced an increase in mortgage rates and deposits.


Russians were warned about the autumn rise in the price of clothing and shoes

 Russians were warned about the autumn rise in the price of clothing and shoes

RBC referred to the gloomy forecasts of experts.

Retailers of retail chains of the Russian Federation report a likely increase in prices for clothing and shoes, which may occur as early as this autumn and next winter. The minimum price increase will be 10%.

According to RBC, after interviewing experts, the maximum price increase will be 15%. This is the opinion of the head of the Baon network Ilya Yaroshenko. Another expert, the head of “Gloria Jeans” Vladimir Melnikov predicts a price increase in early 2022 to 18 & # 8211; 20%.

All retailers believe that the price increase is inevitable due to the rise in the cost of logistics and raw materials. Thus, the founder and one of the owners of the Zenden Group, Andrey Pavlov, said that, according to his calculations, only deliveries from Asian countries (China) to Europe increased in price by 5-6 times.

As for the rise in the price of raw materials, cotton has risen by 35% since January of this year. Melnikov said that the cost of things used in the manufacture of petroleum products has increased.

The publication reports that the spending of Russians on the minimum school enrollment has also increased by 13%, as of mid-July it is estimated at 12,900 rubles.

On average, a ready-made set of schoolchildren (pencils, pens, stationery) has increased in price by 6% since the beginning of the year and costs 690 rubles.

Earlier, Topnews wrote that Moscow is threatened not only by an increase in food prices, but also by a shortage of goods.
