For the first time ever Russia will pay its veterans who live outside of the country's borders a special stipend, starting with the 4,500 veterans living inside Israel's borders.
According to the pension fund of Russia, these veterans will receive a stipend of 100 dollars each month thanks to their military service in the Red Army.
"It's a special presidential decree we managed to secure thanks to our cooperation with our Russian counterparts," said Amos Rosenzweig, the legal adviser to Israel's National Insurance Institute. "We'll publish the instructions for receiving the money in the coming weeks."
