Amidst growing protests, Putin has announced a huge financial aid for his soldiers involved in the Ukraine war. 10 days have passed since the war between Ukraine and Russia began.

In this war, both the countries are claiming to kill thousands of each other's soldiers. Although it will not be so easy to find out the exact number of soldiers killed, yet on the 11th day of the war, Russian President Vladimir Putin has announced financial assistance to the families of the soldiers killed in the war or the injured military personnel. Under his announcement, apart from Ukraine, soldiers and their families involved in the Syrian war will also get benefits. He said that 5 million rubles (Rs 40 lakh) will be given to the family of soldiers who lost their lives in Ukraine or Syria and 3 million rubles (Rs 24 lakhs) will be given to the injured soldiers.According to the report of Al-Jazeera, Russia's Defense Ministry has issued the first report of casualties.
