Putin Issues Cash Bounties In Fight Against Ukraine
(PatrioticPost.com)- According to a report, Russian politicians and businesses are offering rewards for burning, capturing, or destroying NATO tanks in Ukraine.
Up to $21,450 will be paid to Russian soldiers for capturing a US Abrams tank, and $7,150 will be paid for destroying it.
According to Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, cash rewards offered by Russian companies and government officials for the destruction of Western military equipment in Ukraine will inevitably encourage more enthusiasts to take on the task.
After the US and Germany said they would send tanks to Ukraine, the declaration was made.
Berlin reportedly declared it would provide Kyiv with 14 Leopards and permit other European nations to export their own stocks to Ukraine, totaling 112 tanks. President Joe Biden announced the deployment of 31 Abrams tanks to Ukraine, but delivery is not anticipated to occur until late 2023.
In response to the Western decision, Alexander Osipov, the governor of Russias eastern Zabaikalsky Region, issued an order stating that local soldiers fighting in Ukraine could earn money if they could capture or destroy a German or American tank.
A Leopard 2 in good working order could be worth up to $42,900.
According to a report, a reward of $42,900 goes to those who successfully capture it, while $14,300 could be awarded to those who successfully destroy it. Additionally, those who helped with the capture could receive $7,150, and those who helped destroy German tanks could receive $2,240. Up to 10 people may be listed as assistants who are eligible for compensation.
Moscow has repeatedly urged against sending foreign weapons to Ukraine, claiming that doing so will only result in more carnage and have no bearing on how Russias military operation turns out.
The Kremlin has also cited the decision to send heavy tanks to Kyiv as evidence of NATOs direct involvement in the conflict, and it has issued a warning that the tanks will burn like the rest of Western weapons.
