Russia: Protesters rally against pension age rise in Moscow

Protesters rally against the government’s plans to increase the retirement age for Russian citizens in Moscow on Sunday. The authorised protest is organized by the Libertarian Party of Russia and is supported by Alexey Navalny. The protesters are scheduled to march at Akademika Sakharova Avenue. The demonstrators are opposed to a plan to increase the retirement age from 60 to 65 by 2028 for... Еще men and from 55 to 63 for women by 2034. Pavel Kudyukin, an activist of the Russian social-democratic movement said that “we have different arguments why we disagree with the proposals of the government, but we agree in one thing — the government grossly violates the social contract between citizens and the government.» Earlier this month Vladimir Putin commented on the proposed plan, stating that he doesn’t support “any of the options connected with raising the retirement age”.
