Official secretary of ‘Union of Soldiers’ Mothers of Russia’ Valentina Melnikova informs this.
According to her mothers of killed servicemen receive only death certificate and cryptic notifications that their son has been killed. However, they do not receive any documents to obtain social benefits for their perished relatives.
‘There are no documents. There is death certificate and notification that son has died. That is all, there is nothing more. However, there is a list of documents that should be submitted to receive one-time payment for the family members and to receive pension’, – Melnikova said in her interview to Russian newspaper ‘Novaya gazeta’.
Meanwhile, names and surnames of killed soldiers are not indicated during funerals. Russian military commandment uses different tricks to force people to keep quiet about death of soldiers. ‘They are even intimidated with vengeance of ‘The Right Sector’ fighters’, – the human right activist believes.
‘There was an excuse during Chechen [conflict]: ‘There is no need to print the surnames of killed because their families might be avenged’. I do not exclude that these assholes say the same to our families nor: ‘don’t do it because Ukrainian will find you, there is ’The Right Sector’ you know’. These fellows have a lot of ideas how to force people keep quiet. No matter how many wounded that killed there would be – there are no documents, orders’, – Melnikova said.
