About this, as RIA Novosti reports, said deputy chairman of the committee Yuri Shvytkin.
“The amendments will be for the second reading. This is an indexation of the salaries of military personnel and pensions of military pensioners from January 1. Active servicemen - 4.3%, and military pensioners - 6.3%, ”he said.
According to him, also we are talking about increasing salaries for civil servants.
The parliamentarian did not name the exact parameters for raising salaries, since this issue remains to be discussed.
Earlier, a report was published stating that the defense committee of the lower house of the parliament believes that the government is ignoring its recommendations regarding support for the needs of the army.
It was about the first reading of the draft budget law.
The committee pointed out that the Cabinet did not take into account recommendations to increase the level of remuneration for civilian personnel of military units.
Deputies emphasized that the government is evading the implementation of "pension guarantees for citizens dismissed from military service and equated with it."
