The list of annual social contributions did not include funeral expenses, explaining why additional funding was needed.
The FSB requested a 17 percent increase in funding for “military tombs and tombstones” on the 50th day of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
The request for more funeral funds is explained by the fact that these costs are not included in the list of social benefits updated annually according to the FSB.
Rising prices in Russia have risen dramatically since the start of the war, due to Western sanctions, corporate flights, consumer panic and supply disruptions.
Russian authorities have only twice announced the death toll of Russian workers since the invasion of Ukraine.
On March 2, the Ministry of Defense said there were 498 of them, but on March 25, it said there were 1,351 among them.
On April 7, Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin, told Sky News that the Russian military had suffered “significant losses” in Ukraine.
Ukraine’s armed forces demand a much larger number: 20,000 personnel.
