Artist Klara Novikova said in an interview with the correspondent of the Teleprogramma.pro portal that in Russia most people have very small pensions. At the same time, she did not name the amount of her allowance.
“This is a very delicate question. Taking into account that every month you have to pay for all services, then, of course, there would be nothing to live on. But I don’t live on this pension, because it’s impossible. I continue to work, although not a girl at all. But I wouldn't be able to do it without work. As long as I can, I go on stage,”said the artist.
As noted by the star, the mayor of the capital Sergei Sobyanin made a good allowance for honored artists. She herself falls into this category.
“Compared to others, it would be sinful and wrong for me to complain. My friends get a lot less. I have a bigger pension. Sobyanin, of course, thank you very much. Nowadays, medical care and medicines are expensive. Some colleagues live very hard,”added the honored artist.
