Babruisk Resident: I Worked At Enterprise For 36 Years, And My Pension Is $ 140

ILLUSTATIVE PHOTO

The pensioner is very outraged by the constant rise in prices and the absence of any control over them.

"It seems that pensioners are the bane of everyone else’s lives," – Valeryja Ivanova, a retired woman, has said to Viacherni Babruisk:

– I worked at the enterprise for 36 years and retired two years ago, I get 270 rubles. And I am very indignant at the constant rise in prices and the absence of any control over them. Well, tell me, why the same milk costs 85 kopecks in one store, and 95-97 kopecks – in another one?

It seems that the difference is 10 kopecks, but in fact it is a thousand in the old money. The summer season began, and there was another unpleasant surprise: the pensioner pays half for the ticket, as before, but the very cost of the ticket had been increased. And now it turns out that the round trip to the dacha costs me 1.8 rubles. And at that we constantly hear that there are too many pensioners around. It seems that pensioners are the bane of everyone else’s lives. But after all, before the retirement, we also worked, served the state. So why are we treated now as a write off? It's very insulting.
