FOR SOME REASON, THERE ARE NO PENSION ARREARS IN BASHKORTOSTAN

There are no more pension arrears in the Republic of Bashkortostan. This declaration could be heard at the Republic’s 4th conference of the veterans of war, labour, armed forces and law-enforcement bodies. This is the result of a special care on the part of the cabinet which has developed a mechanism of implementing the law of veterans, of the increased control of the use of the allocated funds. As a result, veterans and pensioners received privileges at the total amount of Rbs1.6bn. However, the conference participants are concerned that a small pension increases have always been accompanied by the rise in public utilities tariffs. So, the question remains open, Bashkinform news agency reports.
