WWII veterans will receive increased payments for Victory Day
Russian President Vladimir Putin named the size of the social lump sum payment that veterans of the Great Patriotic War and home front workers will receive this year. The amount will be 75 thousand and 50 thousand rubles, respectively.
In St. Petersburg, at a meeting with veterans and representatives of public organizations, Putin said that in the year of the 75th anniversary of Victory, the amount of traditional payments for Victory Day will change. If earlier veterans received ten thousand rubles for the holiday, then this year they will be sent 75 thousand each. Home front workers will receive 50 thousand rubles instead of the usual five thousand rubles.
The President also expressed hope that this year, in preparation for the celebration of the 75th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War, a series of events will be held throughout Russia and in the regions aimed at supporting participants in the Second World War. Putin said that he counts most on volunteers on this issue.
