Russian President Vladimir Putin has proposed increasing the maximum payment of unemployment benefits. He wants to raise it from eight thousand rubles to 12 thousand - to increase it to the level of the minimum wage (minimum wage).

According to Putin, the Russian economy is experiencing strong negative pressure due to the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic, people can lose their jobs, so they need to be supported. The president also called on those who were on sick leave to help. Since now sick pay is calculated based on the length of service and salary, young employees receive small payments. Putin proposed changing the accrual scheme.

“I propose to establish the norm: sick pay should be calculated on the basis of at least one minimum wage per month,” the president said in an address to the residents of Russia.

According to him, while such a norm will be valid until the end of this year, and then the authorities, taking into account the situation on the coronavirus, will decide whether to leave it or cancel it.
