State Duma deputy Sergei Mironov has proposed an additional indexation of pensions and salaries in Russia. He proposes to do this in connection with the collapse of the ruble exchange rate and the coronavirus pandemic.

According to "Rossiyskaya Gazeta", Sergei Mironov made proposals to increase salaries for workers in all fields and at enterprises of all forms of ownership. To implement these proposals, business exemptions may be introduced in terms of payment of insurance premiums. In his opinion, such measures will not lead to additional budget expenditures, since a cheaper ruble only makes it easier for the state to fulfill its obligations.

According to the deputy, the increase in prices due to the coronavirus and the collapse of the ruble should not affect the purchasing power of the population. At the same time, experts have already reported on the rise in prices for the main groups of imported goods by 10-35%: footwear, clothing, household appliances, medicines and goods for children. At the same time, domestic products may rise in price due to the high level of inflation and the rise in prices for foreign components.

Since the beginning of the collapse of the ruble, several changes have already occurred in the Russian economy. So, some banks raised rates on mortgage loans, increased cost flight tickets. In addition, the Russians have already begun to shoot more often наличные and get more loans.
