MOSCOW, May 16. /ITAR-TASS/. The minimum subsistence level of the Russian population is projected to increase by 22.6% to 8,956 rubles ($257.8) by 2017, the Russian Economic Development Ministry said in a document submitted to the government.
“Starting from 2014, the forecast [of the social and economic development for 2014-2017] does not envision the minimum subsistence level’s faster growth comparing the inflation rate. Therefore, the per capita indicator is projected at 8,956 rubles by 2017 with 22.6% growth on 2013,” the document underlined.
In the next three years, the share of population with incomes below the minimum subsistence will go down from 11.1% in 2013 to 10.2% in 2017.
