British Intelligence: Putin is attempting to bribe Russian military personnel

Share this article

British intelligence has revealed the reasons and consequences for Russia of two laws adopted by Moscow to support Russian military personnel fighting in Ukraine and their families.

According to the British Ministry of Defense intelligence review dated April 13.

The department indicated that the first law exempted Russian military personnel fighting in Ukraine from paying interest on consumer loans and granted them credit holidays. At the same time, the second law prohibits employers from dismissing widows of Russian military personnel within one year from the date of their husband's death.

The review suggests that the Kremlin likely enacted these laws in hopes of reassuring its military personnel, financially incentivizing more soldiers to join the army in exchange for state benefits, and limiting criticism from the wives of deceased Russian militants.

"Whilst any payment holidays may cost the Russian federal government little in a short time, they are likely to have longer term implications for the Russian economic situation and outlook," the intelligence report noted.
