10:59 24/07/2017

MOSCOW, July 24 (RAPSI) – Lawyer Yury Kachan has filed with Moscow’s Meshchansky District Court a lawsuit demanding explanations from the Russian Labor Minister Maxim Topilin concerning huge retirement pensions of lawmakers, according to the claim’s copy obtained by RAPSI.

Deputy Head of the Labor Ministry’s pension provision department Elena Moskaleva is a co-defendant in the lawsuit.

Retirement benefits of lawmakers differ markedly from pensions of ordinary citizens, the lawsuit reads.

The plaintiff asks to clarify the reasons for the occurrence of “private legislation governing MPs’ pension provision that extends special privilege to them.” 

Additionally, the attorney demands to collect 1 ruble ($0,017) in damages jointly from the defendants.

Kachan also seeks to turn over the control of retirement contributions payment from the Pension Fund of Russia to the Federal Tax Service.

The lawsuit has been set for July 31.
