The publication refers to the explanatory note to the relevant draft federal budget for 2024 and the planning period of 2025 and 2026.

The document says that in accordance with the decisions taken by the government, "indexation of wages for employees of federal state bodies in 2024 is not carried out."

At the same time, the decision will not affect the indexation of salaries of employees of public sector organizations. So, on October 1, 2024, their salaries will be increased by the forecast inflation rate of 2024, that is, by 4.5%, the report said.

The indexation of salaries of state employees from the spheres of healthcare, social security, education and culture will continue, RBC notes.

Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin earlier at a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers on the draft federal budget for 2024-2026 said that an increase in the minimum wage by 18.5% from next year will raise the salaries of more than 4.5 million Russians.
