The assignment of pensions should be convenient and automatic. This was announced on April 15, State Duma deputy and member of the State Duma Committee on Labor, Social Policy and Veterans Affairs Vladimir Melnik.
He recalled that Russian President Vladimir Putin advocated getting rid of the bureaucratic layer and simplifying the receipt of social services by citizens.
