Ulyukayev did not rule out a second indexation of pensions in 2016 due to the additional revenues


Moscow. November 10. The Minister of economic development Alexei Ulyukayev allows for the possibility of a second indexation of pensions in 2016 with additional revenues.

“I think this is a premature question (about the possibility of a second indexation of pensions in 2016). There is hope, and how it will materialize – we’ll see”, – said the speaker reporters on Tuesday.

Answering the question definitively whether the decision about the indexation of pensions due to the freeze of pension savings, he said, “No, of course.”

“In General, there is a possibility of obtaining extra resources. I believe that we have a conservative estimate of revenues, and there is a possibility of mobilization of tax arrears, as well as the possibility of obtaining other income, including privatization. Depending on how it will be successful, it will be possible to put this question”, – said Ulyukayev.
