The average monthly salary in Russia this year will grow by almost 5,000 rubles - 9.1% - compared to last year and will amount to over 56,000 rubles, the authors of the updated macroeconomic forecast of the Ministry of Economics until 2024 said.

According to Vedomosti, referring to the document, the annual growth will be 6.6%, and by 2024 the average salary of Russians will approach 68,000 rubles. The previous forecast said that the level of wages will rise by 3800 rubles - 7.4% - to 54,000 rubles, and by 2024 it will exceed 66,200 rubles. The specialists of the department left the estimate of the growth of disposable incomes of citizens unchanged: 3% this year, 3.4% next year, 2.5% - in 2023 and 2.6% - in 2024.

Let's remind that earlier the Ministry of Finance planned to increase insurance premiums from salaries of more than 122 thousand rubles. Thus, the authorities intended to replenish the budget by 400 billion rubles. But the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs called the initiative "extremely risky", since an increase in insurance premiums could negatively affect those who pay their employees according to "gray schemes". Such a business turns out to be extremely vulnerable to criminal prosecution.
