Russia's Putin says he doesn't like pension reform plans - RIA

MOSCOW, July 20 (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Friday he did not like any of the proposed options for raising the retirement age, a reform being discussed by parliament that has dented his approval ratings, RIA news agency reported.

Putin said no final decision had been taken on raising the retirement age, a day after Russian lawmakers backed the proposal in a preliminary vote as the government looks for extra money for the budget. (Reporting by Vladimir Soldatkin Writing by Tom Balmforth Editing by Christian Lowe)
