The achievements of recent decades in reducing poverty and unemployment in Russia are at risk due to the coronavirus pandemic. This was stated by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.

In a video message for the World Leaders Day at the global summit of the International Labor Organization, the prime minister said that the world of work is experiencing serious negative consequences due to the pandemic. At risk, he said, were achievements over the previous decades in the field of poverty reduction and employment.

Mishustin said coronavirus calls require a coherent, convincing response. According to him, this will allow to restore jobs, guarantee social protection and determine the vector of further development of the labor market.

The proportion of people living below the poverty line in some regions of Russia exceeded 20%. Pandemic income declined more than 1,5 million people.
