Fake information aimed at discrediting the military-political leadership of Ukraine is being spread on the territory of the Russian Federation, namely, alleged evidence of the appointment of a monetary reward for the destruction of servicemen of the armed forces of the Russian Federation from 700 to 1 thousand US dollars is provided.
In the temporarily occupied territory of the Luhansk region, the occupation authorities are reorganizing individual units. After carrying out the mentioned measures, the relatives of the dead servicemen are denied compensation in the amount of 3 million Russian rubles due to the disbandment of the unit and the lack of legal grounds.
