Gaevsky notes that the regulations may still change, and its final version will be ready within a few months.

When should pensioners expect the second indexation of pensions? – In the project, we assume that the second indexation will be carried out in September.

This level is the mentioned 5%. Meanwhile, according to forecasts, inflation in the first half of this year may be lower (according to preliminary estimates from Glavstat, inflation in January amounted to 3.9% on an annualized basis).
