Event

Opposition groups have called for nationwide protests to take place on Sunday, September 9. The demonstrations, which are planned in nearly 100 cities throughout Russia, are being organized to denounce government plans to raise the age at which citizens can begin collecting pension funds. A heightened security presence and localized traffic disruptions are expected near any demonstration sites.

Context

Russian government officials have proposed raising the pension age from 55 to 63 for women and from 60 to 65 for men to help offset the economic effects of an aging population and a smaller workforce.

Advice

Individuals in Russia are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
