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.)
