In Crimea, recorded a sharp rise in complaints about pensions

In the Crimea increased the number of complaints about human rights violations that came to the local Commissioner for human rights. It follows from statistics that the Commissioner for human rights in Russia Tatiana Moskalkova led on Friday, June 17, at the coordination meeting of regional ombudsmen in the Public chamber. Moskalkova compared the data for the first five months of 2016 with the same period in 2015. “80% increase in the number of complaints about human rights violations in the southern Federal district, in the Crimea — 75%,” said the Commissioner. We are talking about complaints of the Crimean office of the Federal Ombudsman, said RBC representative of the Commissioner.

The Commissioner for human rights in Crimea Lyudmila Depth also captures the increase in complaints. In 2014 the residents of Crimea have sent her to 680 cases in 2015 — 4200, told RBC Lubina, who was appointed Ombudsman on 9 July 2014. According to her, after the transition period, which lasted until 1 January 2015, citizens of the Crimea began to complain about the reduction in the size of pensions. Immediately after the annexation of Crimea to Russia at the end of March 2014, the Crimean government at the expense of subsidies from the Federal budget and a separate allocation could make the size of the Crimean pensions is higher than in other regions. After the end of the transitional period, the Russian government has determined to synchronize the Crimean Federal legislation, payments were calculated according to the national rules, explained Depth.

In late may, the residents of the Crimea complained to the pensions of Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, who arrived on the Peninsula. “What is eight thousand? Feet on we got it! We have worked 45 years, we have nothing to pay. You said indexing is where she is in the Crimea, indexing?” — asked the inhabitant of the Crimea, Medvedev, whose question came in the video posted on YouTube.

In response, Medvedev said that indexing “nowhere”. “Just no money. Find the money, do indexing, ” he said. — You stay here, you all the best, good mood and health.”

Another issue of concern to Crimean land. “People have encountered problems when registering their plots, — said Depth. — In Ukraine it was possible to issue the property for 4 types of land. Russian laws do not provide the possibility of privatization”.

The number of complaints has increased not only in Crimea but in Russia as a whole. This is evidenced by the annual report of the Commissioner for human rights, which was prepared by the predecessor Moskalkova on this post, Ella Pamfilova. In 2014, the Commissioner received 59 100 citizens, state and public organizations, in 2015 — 64 189 (9 525 — email 54 664 — paper) applications. This is 18% more than in 2014, as indicated in the report.
