“In order to keep highly-qualified senior personnel in public service, the bill allows a federal public servant holding a senior executive position to have his or her tenure extended at the decision of the Russian president until he or she reaches the age of 70,” according to a memo to the bill proposed to the State Duma.

“The implementation of the approach proposed by the bill would fit the general trend enshrined in the Russian laws regarding judges, prosecutors and investigators, whose age limit is 70,” the document said.

Currently, the federal law “On the state civil service in the Russian Federation” dated July 27, 2004, sets the age limit of a public servant at 60.
