In 2016, the national minimum wage in Russia remained fixed at 76.9 € per month, that is 923 euros per year, taking into account 12 payments per year.
If we look at the minimum salary in Russian Rubles, which is the official currency in Russia, we can see that, this year, it was 6,204 Russian Rubles and accordingly, the national minimum wage has been raised 240 Russian Rubles per month from the previous year, 4.02%. This increase is less than the CPI of 2015 which was 12.9%,and so workers, despite the raise, have lost buying power in the last year.
