But what's more disturbing is that the retirement age for men will be just one year under the life expectancy for Russian men, suggeting that on average Russian men will only retire for one year before they die, thus saving a lot of money in state pensions.
Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev announced on Thursday the Russian state pension age would be boosted from 60 to 65 for men by 2028 and 55 to 63 for women by 2034.
Mr Medvedev said the measures were “unavoidable and long overdue”, and were designed to kick-start a rise in living standards and economic development.
But the new policy would mean the country’s retirement age for men would only be a year lower than the World Health Organisation’s estimated life expectancy for a Russian man aged 66.
The government have been criticised by Russia citizens for trying to hide the announcement while people were distracted with the 2018 World Cup which is being held in Vladimir Putin’s superstate.
