Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered to make payments on Victory Day to veterans and invalids of the Great Patriotic War living “in the liberated territories of Ukraine”
The one-time payment will be 10 thousand rubles. The money will be transferred in May.
In addition to residents of the “liberated territories of Ukraine”, veterans living in the DPR and LPR (Russia recognized these states within the borders of the Luhansk and Donetsk regions) will have to receive money.
Five cents per hero. Better send them a pack of toilet paper or some bowls to begin with. 😂
Let’s see here, according to my internet browser search, 10,000 rubles isn’t a lot, as of April 30, 2022
10,000 rubles to American dollars, equals $138.88 USD
10,000 rubles to Ukrainian Hryvnias, equals $4161.18 UAH
And how many WWII vets could possibly be in occupied Donbas right now? Maybe 3?
Indeed. I’m also wondering if eligibility is also dependent on how “dedicated” those veterans were to the Russian state in its fight against the nazis. Especially since they also later borrowed tactics and methods of brutality from the nazis.
Only Ukrainians can create “liberated territories of Ukraine”.
Who ordered it?
