The relevant decision was made at a government meeting on Wednesday, the Government portal reported.
“The Government supported the initiative of President Volodymyr Zelensky and allocated UAH 100,000 of one-time assistance to all 35 prisoners released from Russian captivity on September 7 this year. The funds will be allocated by the Finance Ministry in the framework of a separate budget program for the Ministry for Veterans Affairs, Temporarily Occupied Territories and Internally Displaced Persons of Ukraine for further payment to the released prisoners,” Prime Minister of Ukraine Oleksiy Honcharuk said.
As reported, Russia and Ukraine exchanged detainees in the 35-for-35 format on September 7. Eleven Ukrainians illegally convicted in Russia, including Oleg Sentsov, Roman Sushchenko, Oleksandr Kolchenko, Pavlo Hryb, and others, and 24 sailors detained near the Kerch Strait in late November 2018 returned to Ukraine.
