The President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin proposed from 2022 to switch to the indexation of maternity capital not according to the forecast, but according to the actual inflation for the previous year. The head of state stated this in the State Duma, as evidenced by the transcript posted on the website of the lower house of parliament.

Inflation this year, according to him, will exceed the forecast level of 5.8%. At the same time, higher inflation hits the least affluent groups of the population hard. The President recalled that social payments, which are financed from the federal budget, should be indexed by actual inflation in 2022.
