Russian lawmakers pass pension reform bill on second reading

MOSCOW, Sept 26 (Reuters) - Russia’s lower house of parliament passed an amended draft law on the second reading on Wednesday that would raise the retirement age to 65 from 60 for men and to 60 from 55 for women.

The draft legislation has been amended in line with President Vladimir Putin proposals to soften reforms following mass protests across Russia. (Reporting by Darya Korsunskaya Writing by Polina Nikolskaya Editing by Andrew Heavens)
