Now soldiers will not have to provide information on their income, their expenses, their assets
The new tax policy will also apply to partners and children of individuals
Moscow, Russia has made a big announcement to boost the morale of its soldiers fighting against Ukraine. Russian authorities have announced that soldiers and state employees deployed to fight in Ukraine will be exempted from income tax. The new tax policy applies to all Russian soldiers fighting in four Ukrainian regions, including Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhia. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov on Friday cited an exemption contained in an anti-corruption law, the details of which were published by Russian authorities on Thursday evening, according to a Moscow Times report.
According to the order, soldiers, police, members of security services and other state employees serving in the four regions will no longer have to provide information on their income, their expenditure, their assets. According to the new decree, Putin will give gifts to the soldiers fighting in Ukraine. The order further states that Russian forces in Ukraine are also entitled to receive awards and gifts if they are of a humanitarian character and have been received by Russia as part of what it calls a “special military operation” in Ukraine. The new tax policy will also apply to partners and children of individuals.
Russian President Vladimir Putin signed an order on Thursday to remove requirements for government officials to disclose their income tax returns for the duration of Russia’s war in Ukraine, the Moscow Times reported. Prior to this order, Russian law required public servants to publicly disclose income tax returns for themselves and their immediate family members in an effort to reduce endemic corruption. The Moscow Times reported that military officers who were appointed or dismissed were also required to disclose their tax returns. At the same time, the Kremlin has rolled out a series of incentives for Russians fighting in Ukraine, offering cash bonuses and pledging financial support to families in the event of the death or injury of loved ones.
