The State Duma will again discuss the idea of ​​reducing the retirement age for residents of the Arctic and the North. They will return to the question after monitoring the situation in the regions.

As told TASS First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Regional Policy and Problems of the North and the Far East Valentina Pivnenko, monitoring is carried out to find out whether the increase in the retirement age has affected the outflow of the population.

This year, the State Duma, like Russian Government, rejected the bill to reduce the retirement age for residents of the Far East. According to Valentina Pivnenko, he could have a conflict with other regions, where living and working conditions are more severe.

To reduce the retirement age for residents of the Far East was proposed by the Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Regional Policy and Problems of the North and Far East Nikolay Kharitonov. According to him, general approaches to raising the retirement age in Russia are not suitable for the Far East, since the average life expectancy in the Far Eastern Federal District and the Far North is lower than in other regions of Russia.
