In Russia froze again accumulative part of pensions

Economists have previously speculated that it may freeze to continue until 2019

Deputy Prime Minister of Russia Olga Golodets said that the country will again be frozen accumulative part of pensions, and will be announced before indexing scholarship students.

However, she said to journalists after the cabinet meeting, the issue of indexation scholarship it is not even considered.

Last year, the then Minister of Education said that in September 2016 in scholarships index and increase 4 percent.

In pension insurance consists of insurance and accumulative parts, and the second one owner personal account in the Pension Fund may to a certain extent dispose of, in particular, to resolve some issues part of the investment. But from 2014, in order to reduce the budget deficit this part of the Russian frozen and deductions on it for their future pensions were let on current payments current retirees. Then the event continued also in 2015 and 2016. Economists have previously speculated that it may freeze to continue until 2019.

2014 Russia's economy narazylasya significant difficulties which can not go far. The reason shyrokosyazhni international sanctions imposed because of Russian aggression against Ukraine in Crimea and Donbas, which added a sharp decline in oil prices - one of the main export products of, providing the budget. In Ukrainian/український

Wonder what will be and when it'll be, the breaking point for a majority of Russians. MOST supporters of Putin are the babushka's and dedushka's (seniors). When they start getting their pensions affected and have nothing else, due to the current economy, they'll turn on him. Then Putin has a big-big problem. Same as is in Ukraine, the seniors tend to favor the old times, due to back then, they were basically given what they needed to live daily but nothing else. I've heard it from people I know in Ukraine. "we had what we needed, back in the soviet days". Now we'll see how the seniors in Russia react, when they can't afford to sustain everyday life.

Analysts predict that the next few months will be very dangerous for Ukraine

The coming months will be extremely dangerous and much will depend on results of presidential elections in the US.

Analysts predict that the next few months will be very dangerous for Ukraine.
About this in his article on the pages of The Times writes The Economist journalist Edward Lucas.

"Now Russia holds the largest military exercise in decades, causing worry our spies and analysts. It is a brutal war in Syria, using the helplessness of Western diplomacy. Violence has intensified in Ukraine, killing many people during this month. Russia "bombards" Western countries, including Sweden and Finland its propaganda. It is trying to undermine our elections stolen documents and slander ", - stated in the material.

The journalist says that the Kremlin is capable of something that in a crisis would not be able to either West or the United States, wrote

"He is suffering economic pain, risks and blatantly lying about what he does. His goal is not to rule the world and destroy the order on the basis of rules that post-Cold War allowed us to live in security and freedom "- writes columnist.

He adds that the current world order like everyone in the West, as all disputes are resolved talks and "force" is not "right."

"Russia despises these rules. She is convinced that they are unfair and hypocritical concluded implemented. From the point of view of the Kremlin, continues gloomy existential struggle in which Russia can win only if the West weakened. The game is worth the candle. From our point of view, tension with Russia - this is just a local problem. Other troubles, such as economics, migration, climate change, mean much more, "- says the article.

Lucas believes that the best response from the West would stick to its values, increasing its rules and procedures. Instead, now, at best, half-measures taken. Out of sight of the West somehow falls that the Kremlin invaded and conquered the territory of Ukraine two years ago, violating the fundamental principles of order in Europe after 1991.

The author adds that the coming months will be extremely dangerous and much will depend on results of presidential elections in the US.

"If Hillary Clinton wins, Russia will face the administration in Washington, which considers the one that wants to put it on his knees. Clinton treated with aversion to the Russian president and mocking of his behavior in the style of "macho". Neither she nor her advisers dislike extremely soft approach of the White House and Obama Derzhdu under John Kerry. But Clinton did not move into the White House in January. If Putin during this time will change the facts on the ground, that is hard to start trading on Syria to force Ukraine to go on humiliating political decision of Russian puppets in the East or ruin the credibility of the Baltic States into NATO, then it has a chance to win "- analyst suggested.
