"As of March 31, we had already paid out more than UAH 1 million. A total of UAH 4 million is to be paid as monetary compensation under [already] issued orders. In particular, rewards for the successful performance of combat missions and direct participation in combat are to be given about 800 soldiers of the Ukrainian armed forces in the near future," Mazepa said.
