Lukashenka: Pension age increase should affect everyone

Лукашэнка лічыць справядлівым падняць пенсійны ўзрост для ўсіх

The meeting dedicated to the development of the pension system was held on March 10. It would be fair if the pension age increase affected everyone, the President said.


"However, everything needs to be taken into account: the difference of men and women’s life span, the specific character of living in cities and in the country, working conditions in some spheres and some other factors,” BELTA quotes Alyaksandr Lukashenka.

There are two opinions, Lukashenka said. The government is suggesting a pension age increase due to economic reasons. The peoples’ opinion is different.
