MOSCOW, August 29. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin said in his televised address on Wednesday the retirement age for women should be 60 rather than 63.”The retirement age for women should not increase more than for men. That’s why I believe it is necessary to reduce the increase in the retirement age for women proposed by the law from 8 to 5 years,” Putin said.The president said the draft bill on the pension reform suggests increasing the retirement age for women by eight years and for men by five years. “That wouldn’t do, certainly. This is wrong,” Putin said.
