The NAPC recalled that the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense guaranteed the payment of $ 100,000 for the detention or transfer of captivity of the Russian militant Girkin.
The agency notes that the law does not prohibit the receipt of such remuneration by the subjects of declaration (that is, civil servants), but the remuneration received must be indicated as income in the declaration for 2022.
Girkin (also known as Igor Strelkov, “Strelok” and Sergey Runov) is wanted in Ukraine for terrorist activities, torture, murder and violations of state sovereignty.
The Netherlands put him on the international wanted list in connection with the downing of a civilian Boeing 777 flight MH17 in 2014.
- On October 15, it became known that Girkin signed up as a volunteer in the Russian army and went to war against Ukraine.
- After that, Twitter began an informal fundraiser for a reward for his detention. Public activist and volunteer Sergei Sternenko was the first to promise to pay $10,000 to anyone who takes Girkin prisoner. Singer Taras Topolya, writer Valery Markus, tennis player Serhiy Stakhovsky, head of the Luhansk OVA Serhiy Gaidai promised the same amount.
