Federal Law No. 77-FZ of June 3, 2006 on the Amendments to Article 28 of the Federal Law on Labour Pensions in the Russian Federation

According to Subitem 1 of Item 1 of Article 28 of the Federal Law on labour pensions in the Russian Federation, the pension on beneficial terms (upon reaching 50 years of age with the total insured length of service of at least 15 years) is assigned among other cases to mothers of invalids from childhood having brought them up to 8 years of age. Thus, at present, if the invalid child was brought up in an incomplete family without the mother (in case of her death and in other cases), the other parent (trustee) having brought up such child actually does not enjoy the right for an early labour old-age pension.

The amendments envisage such right for one of the parents of invalids from childhood having brought them up until the age of 8 years (men - upon reaching 55 years of age, women - 50 years in the presence of insured length of service at least 20 and 15 years respectively), as well as for trustees having brought up the invalid child until 8 years of age.

Order of the Government of the Russian Federation No. 793-r of June 1, 2006

Endorses the strategy of development of the financial market of the Russian Federation for the years 2006-2008 and the plan of measures to implement it. The strategy implies key directions of activities of state bodies in the sphere of regulation of the financial market for the nearest years. Its goal is making the financial market one of the main mechanisms of implementation of investment programs of the corporate sector while creating conditions for efficient investing of private savings and resources of obligatory saving systems.

To reach it, the task is set to reduce significantly transactional expenses of attraction of capital by developing competitive institutes of the infrastructure of the stock market, reduce the level of non-market investment risk by ensuring protection of rights and legal interests of investors, promote Russian retail investors by developing collective forms of savings, reform legal regulation of financing to eliminate economically unreasonable regulatory obstacles and create conditions for the interests of professional participants of the market, investors and issuers to form the policy of regulation of the financial market.

The measures envisaged in the strategy are expected to permit to ensure conditions for an accelerated development of the financial market as compared to the rates of growth of the gross domestic product. As a result of the year 2008, the cost of net assets of investment funds, accumulated pensions and reserves are expected to double as compared to the gross domestic product to make 6%; the cost of corporate bonds is also expected to double (from 2.2% in 2005 to 4.5% in 2008); the correlation of insurance premiums and the gross domestic product is expected to increase (from 3% in 2005 to 5% in 2008); capitalisation of the stock market must reach 70% by the beginning of 2009, with the share of operations with Russian stocks in Russia making at least 70% in 2008.

In 2008, attraction of financial resources through placing of stocks and bonds by Russian companies at the internal financial market will make at least 20% of investments in the main capital of large and medium-size enterprises. Taking into account attraction of credits and loans, this figure will reach 35%-40% with Russian banks and at the international market of capital.

To improve efficiency of capital markets, it is suggested to introduce in the legislation regulating financial markets the notion of "skilled investor" to identify the person whose experience and skills permit him to adequately assess risks associated with investments in these or those exchange instruments and carry out operations with securities independently.

A special law is expected to be adopted on insider information and on manipulation of prices to combine the main legal norms regulating unfair trade pertaining to securities and other financial instruments at the financial market, as well as to introduce efficient measures of responsibility for officials of economic companies having permitted violations of the legislation while committing major transactions and transactions of interest.
