Decree for the Occupied Territories: Putin paid 10,000 rubles to Ukrainians

Ordinance for Occupied Territories
Putin pays Ukrainians 10,000 rubles

UN Kremlin boss Putin is donating 10,000 rubles to Ukrainian residents living in war zones as the US condemns Russia’s atrocities before the Security Council. That’s almost 170 euros. The order comes from Moscow on Independence Day.

Six months after the invasion of Ukraine, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered payments to people in the occupied territories. In the eastern Ukrainian regions of Donetsk, Luhansk and Kharkiv, and in the occupied regions of Zaporizhia and Cherson in the south, parents of children between the ages of 6 and 18 must pay a one-time payment of 10,000 rubles – the equivalent amount. Almost 170 euros – according to the Kremlin report. Moscow has repeatedly been criticized for tying Ukrainians to money, for example, by issuing Russian passports. Putin’s decree coincides with Ukraine’s current Independence Day.

On February 24, Russian troops invaded Ukraine. Moscow’s official war goal is the “liberation” of Donetsk and Luhansk from Ukrainian nationalists. International observers see this as a pretext – especially since Russia has occupied large parts of other Ukrainian territories. In the occupied territories of Kherson and Zaporizhia regions, which Moscow says it seized only as a kind of buffer zone to protect Donetsk and Luhansk, Russian passports have already been distributed and the Russian ruble has been introduced as currency. In addition, Moscow has installed military administrations there loyal to the Kremlin.

USA: We never accept links

Meanwhile, the United States underlined its support for Ukraine’s fight against aggressive Russia at the UN Security Council. “Frankly, the international community will never recognize Russia’s attempt to forcibly change Ukraine’s borders,” US Ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield told a Security Council meeting on the six-month war.

Thomas-Greenfield said that cities such as Bucha and Irbin have seen horrific atrocities by Russian forces over the past six months, including rape, murder and torture. Evidence continues to mount that Russian forces have arrested, interrogated, and forcibly deported hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians, including children. “Their reasons are clear: they want to destroy Ukraine – its culture, its people, its existence.”
