The governor of the Trans-Baikal Territory, Alexander Osipov, explained that he had introduced payments for the military from the region for capturing tanks in Ukraine to maintain morale and motivation. He said that "the Transbaikalians are Siberian people" and expressed the hope that they would do everything on the battlefield "wisely and without excessive fervor."

"When someone scares with some tanks, they will rush with enthusiasm to show Kuzkin's mother to all these overseas foreign technical tricks. So I worry first of all that they do it intelligently, calmly, without excessive fervor and haste, wisely. And secondly, of course, they deserve encouragement for the results", - the governor said. His words are quoted by RIA Novosti.

Recall that on the eve of the governor promised to pay up to three million rubles to the military from the region, who will capture Western tanks during a special operation in Ukraine. For the capture of the Leopard tank, the military was promised to pay three million rubles, for its destruction - one million rubles.
