Medvedev to Crimean pensioners: No money in Russian budget! (video)


At the moment. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev is on a working trip to Crimea. Asked by a local resident when Russia will raise pensions, he referred to the lack of money in the country’s budget…

The video shows an elderly woman saying her pension payment is too low (8,000 RUR, or $120) and asking when the Russian government will carry out the promised indexation.

Raising pensions does not seem to be possible in one region, Dmitry Medvedev replied.

“There is simply no money now. We will find the money and have the indexation of pensions. Hold on, I wish you all the best, good health and good mood!” Medvedev said and quickly left the venue.
