Crimean pensioners had subsistence minimum increased by 30 rubles (0.46 USD).

According to the decision of the State Council of Crimea, the size of the subsistence minimum next year will be 8560 rubles (about 130.51 USD), and this year it is 8 530 rubles.

The size of the subsistence level is set depending on the category of citizens. Based on this indicator, the amount of social support is calculated.

"State Council Speaker," Vladimir Konstantinov, said that over 85 thousand people would receive an additional payment to the pension, taking into account the cost of living.
Earlier it was reported that the Russian authorities raised the retirement age for women to 60 years.

Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova said that easing pension reform in Russia, namely raising the retirement age for women to 60 years old instead of 63, would cost the country more than 3 trillion rubles.

In turn, the Kremlin-controlled parliament of the occupied Crimea supported the Russian draft law on pension reform and adopted a corresponding draft resolution on raising the retirement age.
