Even under fire, Ukrainians are keeping their sense of humor. On the Facebook page for the National Agency for Corruption Prevention, authorities announce that captured Russian tanks do not need to be declared to tax authorities because “this shit isn’t worth enough” to report. (The minimum is 100 cost of living units, a unit being 248 Hrevniya (about $8), it notes.)
???? Захопили російський танк або БТР та переживаєте про те, як його декларувати? Зберігайте спокій та продовжуйте захищати…
The tongue-in-cheek post, which authorities say does actually reflect current national tax policy (which may change after the war), notes that the equipment is tax-exempt because it was acquired to due to being a result of the “Russian aggression.”
“Thanks to the bravery of the defenders of Ukraine, the enemy’s equipment usually gets to you already damaged and so there’s no way to assess the value.”
“So the Russian tanks can fuck off submit a declaration,” the salty-tongued authority says.
