ROSTOV-ON-DON, 3 Sep — RIA Novosti. Social Revolutionaries support the amendments to the bill of changes in the pension legislation proposed by the Russian President Vladimir Putin however keep a negative position on the bill in general, the leader of Just Russia Sergey Mironov.© has told on Monday to journalists RIA Novosti / Vladimir of Fedorenko to Pass into an image bank Poklonskaya has commented on offers on change pension системыПо to his words, the president "corrects errors of the government". "Our fraction will support amendments which he had proposed, but neither in the second, nor in the third reading the party won't vote for this law" — Mironov has told. The State Duma in July has adopted in the first reading the government bill assuming gradual increase in retirement age up to 65 years for men and up to 63 years for women. However the Russian President Vladimir Putin has proposed a number of measures for mitigation of the decision which he had announced last week in a televised address to Russians. In particular, the head of state has supported age for women in 60 years, early retirement for mothers having many children and introduction of measures of protection of persons of pre-retirement age. His offers will be issued as the amendment to the bill and introduced to the State Duma. Experts said that the completion of the pension bill offered by the president enhances its social orientation owing to what the criticism to the document has considerably decreased. Now the standard retirement age in Russia is 60 and 55 years at men and women respectively, the retirement age stated in the law was established in the 1930th years. The issue of raising the retirement age is discussed already for a long time. Need of it is caused by the grown life expectancy and impossibility to provide decent pension in conditions when the quantity working in the country decreases, and the number of pensioners, on the contrary, grows. Today in the majority of the countries of the world the retirement age makes 60-65 years.
