This is stated by prominent Russian human rights activist Elena Vasilieva on her Facebook page, Censor.NET reports.
"The money laundering scheme is brilliant as always: the allowance of one soldier or mercenary, depending on the position amounts to $6,500 - 11,500 a month. As of the end of August this year, the list of the deceased personnel of the special forces of the FSB, the Ministry of Defense, and the Interior Ministry of the Russian Federation constituted 1,606 people, for whom more than $10 million per month were allocated.
"Humble leaders" of the secret services that you (addresses Putin - Ed.) entrusted the agencies to, decided not to report the actual numbers of dead, thereby continuing to appropriate the funds allocated for the allowance of the people already deceased. By October the number of dead in "exercises" shooting at live targets in the form of the Ukrainian people reached 4,500," the human rights activist says.
Elena Vasilieva is a well-known volunteer and activist, founder of civil movement "Cargo-200 From Ukraine to Russia," which deals with establishing and publishing the names of Russian citizens, who died in military conflict in Ukraine.
