Bitcoin in exchange for peace: Masha Efrosinina offers Russian army to get bitcoin if they surrender

According to Masha Efrosinina, a local TV star and honorable ambassador of the United Nations Population Fund in Ukraine, Russian soldiers surrendering to Ukraine would get 5 million rubles in cryptocurrency or cash. In an Instagram post, Efrosinina said that surrendering Russian military members would get 5 million rubles (USD 60,000) in cryptocurrency or fiat cash, as well as an amnesty after a trial.

The offer comes from Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense and the global IT community. Ukraine’s ambassador says to the United States that a Russian battalion that surrendered on February 24 had no idea they were being sent to kill Ukrainians.

The United Nations reports that Russian President Vladimir Putin initiated a “special military action” on Thursday, resulting in an estimated 240 civilian casualties and 64 fatalities. 

The Ukrainian government has now raised approximately $9.1 million in cryptocurrency contributions through Bitcoin, Ethereum, and USDT. Bitcoin has become a popular way to help a country that is defending itself.
