In 2023, the Government of the Russian Federation will set the size of the minimum wage and the subsistence minimum in a “special order”. At the same time, the authority is forced to deviate from the previously adopted rules for their calculation.
The government is taking this step due to high inflation, which is projected to continue to grow, and an extraordinary indexation of social benefits in June 2022. Bills that allow determining the minimum wage and PM in a special manner as part of the budget package will be submitted to the State Duma. At the same time, the minimum wage in 2023-2024 will be 14,375 rubles, and the cost of living – 15,049 rubles.
