УThe pension reform is developed by the government. The president does not take part in the discussion. You know what will happen next: exchange of opinions, expert discussions, expert development of the issueЕ Let us wait for the final framework of the reform,Ф he said.

Peskov also said that PutinТs assertion made in 2005 that the retirement age would never be raised while he is the president took place long ago.
