  • The Verkhovna Rada has passed a new law to reward people who deliver Russian military equipment.

  • Anyone who delivers a Russian warship or fighter jet can receive up to $1 million.

  • The first deputy speaker of the House of Representatives said that the law targets Russian forces frustrating Putin.

The Verkhovna Rada – Verkhovna Rada – passed a law offering rewards to Russian soldiers who surrender with their equipment.

In a statement written on radio siteBill 7229 suggests that anyone who delivers Russian equipment to Ukraine receive a generous payment.

For example, Rada states that anyone who gives the Ukrainian military a Russian warship or combat aircraft (whether a fighter or attack aircraft) can receive a reward of up to $1 million.

A military vehicle, such as a specialized truck, will receive a reward of up to $10,000.

In addition to the money, the statement also states that anyone who gives up Russian equipment will receive “confidentiality, secure residence in Ukraine, support in obtaining new documents and departure to a third country.”

First Deputy Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Oleksandr Kornienko said that this new law will be successful because many Russian soldiers need to “renew their financial situation”. “Weakening the morale of the occupying army will encourage the desire to hand over equipment.”

Kornienko added that the motive of the troops would be “because of their misunderstanding of the meaning of the cause of their death.”

Rewarding dissident Russian forces has been a feature of Ukrainian strategy since the start of the war.

On February 28, Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov gave a speech to the Russian forces on his Facebook page. “We give Russian soldiers a choice: die in an unjust war or a full pardon and compensation of 5 million rubles ($58,000). If they lay down their arms and surrender voluntarily,” he said.
