THIS is how they treat old people in Russia and in the Peoples Republics… in Banderstan, the fascist thieves kick them in the face and steal their pensions. The Republican “conservatives” support the thieving fascists, not the upright and godly Russians… shitbirds of a feather DO flock together…
Today, Deputies of the LNR Peoples Soviet considered and adopted on second reading a law that reduced the retirement age for women to 55 years. According to the amendment:
Citizens living in the LNR can receive an old-age pension after reaching 60-years-old for men and 55-years-old for women, if they’ve been in the insurance scheme for at least 15 years.
Peoples Deputy Aleksei Karyakin commented on the new legislation:
Today, we adopted an amendment to the law stating that men can receive an old-age pension at 60-years-old and women at 55-years-old. We promised this to the people; so, it got a very spirited discussion. We worked hard on all the details… financing, collateral, and provision of guarantees… so, today, in the run-up to the New Year, we gave a New Year gift to our ladies. This will go into effect on 1 January 2016. Previously, we calculated pensions according to Ukrainian norms; for women, they were eligible at 57-years-old. After the New Year, the Ukrainian retirement age for women will rise to 58-years-old. We’ll keep the retirement age at 55 for women; I think that this three-year difference is important. Now, the Peoples Soviet sent the bill forward to the Head of the Republic for his approval. After he signs the document, we’ll publish it, and it’d come into force on the following day.
Earlier, Head of the Republic I V Plotnitsky said that the retirement age for women would decrease to 55-years-old in 2016. The LNR Federation of Trade Unions initiated the petition to the Head of the Republic to lower the retirement age to match Russian norms.

Can you see why the US Republican filth support the putschist junta? They cudgel the ordinary people, just as the GOP monsters want to do. Ponder this… the Republicans claim to be “Pro-Life”, yet, they want to cut all forms of assistance to ordinary people to fatten the boodle bags of the rich. I call them liars and thieves. No doubt, you can see why I consider people like Rod Dreher lying and hypocritical nihilists…
