Experts said that the initiative of State Duma deputy Nikolai Kharitonov to return residents of the Far East to their former age of retirement is unlikely to be approved. The main argument is that other northern regions may also ask for similar conditions, and the overall effect of pension reform in the country may be reduced.

As told RIA News Viktor Burlakov, political scientist, head of the Department of Journalism and Publishing Business at the FEFU School of Humanities, the measure itself is interesting, but without an integrated approach, there will not be much effect.

The director of the Institute of International Business and Economics of Vladivostok State University of Economics and Service (VSUES), Professor Alexander Latkin, is sure that Kharitonov’s initiative is unlikely to be accepted now, after much discussion of the pension reform. He notes that residents of Murmansk and Arkhangelsk can also say that they also have harsh conditions and that they need to return to their previous retirement age.

Alexander Abramov, director of the Far Eastern Center for Development Economics of FEFU, agrees with him. He believes that changing the retirement age is only a federal measure. If you change the retirement age in the regions, it will be different in each.

“And due to the fact that the mobility of the population in Russia is increasing, as all these points will be taken into account, it is not possible to understand. If, for example, a person worked all his life in Sochi, and then moved to live in Chukotka, then what kind of retirement age will he have? ”, The expert noted.

He believes that it is necessary to focus not on age, but on financial compensation. In his opinion, for the Far East and the Arctic region, the corresponding coefficients should be maintained in the provision of pensions.

In July, State Duma deputy Nikolai Kharitonov at a board of the Ministry of Eastern Development and Development announced that the committee on regional politics and problems of the North and the Far East, which he heads, intends to amend the pension regulation so that the Far East can retire before the rest. Recently In an interview EastRussia deputy said that the Russian government gave a negative opinion on the bill to reduce the retirement age for residents of the Far Eastern Federal District. This greatly complicates its passage in the State Duma.
