President lifted age restrictions for officials


Vladimir Putin signed a federal law that amends the law on the state civil service. According to “Kommersant”, the essence of the changes is to remove the age limit for officials appointed by the president.

The bill was personally introduced by the President of Russia at the end of January 2021 and approved by the State Duma in less than two months.

According to the current version of the law, the age limit for civil servants in Russia is 65 years. The law separately states that for executive positions, the age limit can be extended to 70 years. Thus, the approved law removes this restriction for a large number of high-ranking officials.

The astonishing speed of decision-making suggests that these changes are vital for the country’s legislation. It is strange that in a state with such a large staff of officials it is impossible to bring up a worthy replacement. Everything is so bad that the president had to personally prepare a new verion of “pension reform” for officials.

Indeed, changes are always something new, and the authorities do not want new, they want to rule endlessly. As you can see from the endless examples, this is a very profitable business.
