Russia says Ukrainian employees and pensioners received 50 million rubles amid ongoing war


Russia continues to attack Ukraine on the 51st day of the war. However, the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry announced that the Russian Federation had recently donated more than 50 million rubles to Ukrainian pensioners and public sector workers, according to TASS reports. The Russian Emergencies Ministry’s press service said it was continuing to work on issuing one-time payments in the “liberated territory” of Ukraine.

He further said that over the past three weeks, more than 5,000 pensioners and workers of government-funded organizations have received 10,000 rubles. The ministry also said payments are being brought to the homes of people with low mobility and the elderly every day. In addition, regular convoys of Russian trucks carrying 700 tons of humanitarian goods brought aid to Ukraine and the Donbass region. Groceries, bottled water, baby food, daily necessities and construction tools were among the items in the shipment. The Russian assistance agency is still working on issuing payments in the “liberated areas” of Ukraine, according to TASS.
