The State Duma introduced a bill on the annual New Year's Eve payment to pensioners

The Liberal Democrats faction has submitted a bill to the State Duma for consideration.

LDPR deputies have submitted to the State Duma a bill offering additional payments to pensioners before the New Year.

The corresponding document is published in the electronic database of the State Duma.

The authors of the initiative were the leader of the LDPR Vladimir Zhirinovsky, a number of deputies of his faction, senators Elena Afanasyeva and Irina Kozhanova.

According to the draft, those who receive insurance pensions, state pensions and military pensions will be provided with an additional payment.

The amount of such a payment is proposed to be equated to one size of the pension itself, which is due to a citizen at the time of receiving the payment.

According to the explanatory note, real pensions have been declining in Russia for many years in a row, and inflation negatively affects the income of pensioners in Russia.

On New Year’s Eve, when gifts are bought and food is prepared for the holiday, pensioners, according to deputies, need support.

Earlier, topNews wrote that Russians were told about the new rules for paying pensions in 2022. These included making payments without an application.
