Putin told why the points about pensions and the minimum wage to be prescribed in the Constitution

Questions related to social support, it is important to mention that in the main law of the country that they are not forgotten and “was not then cleaned of practical life.” About this Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an interview with Paul Zarubino, the author of the program “Moscow. The Kremlin. Putin” on TV channel “Russia 1”. For the first time of a pandemic interview the President gave in the Kremlin.

“the Issues related to social support. When we talk about special care for children. It is important to mention that in the main law of the country. When we talk about social justice, which is to say that one cannot obtain less than the minimum wage, and when the cost of living should correspond to this minimum wage,” — said the President.

He also reminded that the Constitution’s “necessary for the normal functioning of the pension system,” but “nowhere does it say that retirement income should be regularly indexed”.

“why? Clearly, it was not possible even to do that. And although the law was, but another law has always allowed to correct previous about the need for indexing”, — Putin said.

If indexing of pensions will be spelled out in the Constitution, “for no government in future will not be able to index”.

“Some other things that have matured, but were not included in the basic law can now and then have to find its place. In my opinion, it is very important”, — said the head of state.

Despite the fact that much of the already mentioned works, it is necessary to register in the basic law, to “go further”.

“So they are not forgotten and was then cleaned of practical life. As I just said, there is a law about the necessity of indexation of pensions, but then adopted another law on the budget, which is the exception — this year it will not do or bthere will be in a different mode. That’s all. But if the Constitution is written, it inevitably all authorities and the government will be obliged to do it,” he said.

an Interview with the head of the state can be seen in the program “Moscow. The Kremlin. Putin” on TV channel “Russia 1” on Sunday, 14 June at 22:30.
