MOSCOW, January 1. /TASS/. A Russian presidential decree enters into force
on January 1 that ordains lifetime benefits for some categories of veterans
of the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945) who live in Israel.

According to the directive, a monthly benefit to the tune of 1,000 rubles
($17.3) will be awarded to Israeli nationals, who used to live in the former
Soviet Union and were veterans of the Great Patriotic War, or who were
underage prisoners of concentration camps.

In addition, a monthly benefit of 500 rubles ($8.68) will be paid to Israeli
citizens who hold the title of “Citizen of Besieged Leningrad,” widows and
widowers of servicemen who died during the war with Finland, the Great
Patriotic War, the war with Japan and former adult prisoners of
concentration camps.

According to Israel’s Ministry of Immigrant Absorption, some 10,000 veterans
of the Second World War live in the country. A total of 1.5 million Jews
served in allied armies during WWII, one-third of them in the Red Army and
partisan units on Nazi-occupied territory of the Soviet Union. Some 206,000
of them gave their lives in combat, while another 150 went on to become the
Heroes of the USSR.
