The Kremlin saw a video in which the head of the Pension Fund of Russia (PFR) Maxim Topilin instructed to prepare a second lump sum payment to families with children under 16 by July 1, said spokesman for the Russian President Dmitry Peskov, reports RBC.
“This is normal work, it’s completely normal that people try to transfer money as soon as possible,” Peskov said. He said that if you “ask any person”, everyone will answer that they want to get the money right away. “We don’t see anything reprehensible here,” Peskov added.
Ministry of Labor explained payments to citizens from July 1 as a “technical algorithm”
The Kremlin spokesman also pointed out that the government’s ability to maintain a system that allows people to bring money is admirable.
In a video published earlier by the Znak.com portal, a person similar to Topilin instructed to prepare everything by June 30, because “it’s known that 1 will happen.”
