More than a million Russian veterans received a lump-sum payment in honour of the 75th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War, according to the website of the Pension Fund of Russia.
Half of the payments were delivered by April 10th. By the middle of the month, most veterans have already received them. Payments were assigned without application, that is, on the basis of information available to the fund. Veterans also received annual payments in the amount of 10 thousand rubles. In isolated cases, the money will be given to the participants in the hostilities in May.
