The Security Service of Ukraine (SSU) has intercepted a conversation between two Russian soldiers, father and son, who are trying to raise $ 20,000 each to be demobilized from the war front in Ukraine, Ukrainska Pravda reports.

The father, who was mobilized in the so-called self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, tells his son that he is trying to turn to people who could help both of them to be removed from the front. He admits that he does not regret selling his car to do so.

But his son insists it won’t be enough, because the current rate for “demobilization” is $ 20,000, not $ 2,000, as his father had thought:

“It simply came to our notice then [2.000 de dolari] , yes, but now people are staying here, they have increased (the amount of bribes). Basically, demobilization costs $ 20,000. ”

The Security Service of Ukraine concludes that the prices of the occupants are simple: if you immediately decide that you do not want to go to the front, you may not be mobilized for a sum of $ 2,000. If not, then it will cost you ten times as much to get off the front.

SSU reminds Russian soldiers that there is a free alternative – the 2402 emergency line, which they can use to surrender.
