Seniorzy jako element i argument współczesnej polityki wewnętrznej Federacji Rosyjskiej
The Russian Federation is in the global trend of increasing the number of the elderly population. This fact makes seniors a major social, economic and political issue. Older people are a part of historical policy. As veterans they pass on experience and knowledge of Russian history. Both the state authorities and society as a whole benefit from this. Seniors are a large group which constitutes a strong electorate. The ruling party and the opposition, Справедливая Россия, give this group great prominence in their political programs. The ruling party has created special programs aimed at improving the status of senior citizens in Russia.
