The State Duma in the second and third readings adopted a law extending the status of a combat veteran to volunteers who are fighting in Ukraine. This was reported on the website of the lower house of parliament.
The law applies to members of volunteer groups who went to Ukraine on February 24. The corresponding amendments were made by more than 300 deputies and senators, headed by State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin, five days ago. context-cite__image” alt=”1″ />Regional PR troops.

Since the beginning of the war the status of a combat veteran has already been granted to the military involved in the invasion of Ukraine, to the FSB officers who “repelled armed provocations on the border” , and civilian specialists, such as doctors and builders.
In October, Putin signed a law on credit holidays for war veterans. They were also given a tax break. The mobilized and their relatives, in turn, were exempted from penalties for late payment of utility bills.
