"Another special plane with volunteers took off. They arrived in Grozny from different parts of Russia for subsequent participation in the special military operation," he said.

According to Kadyrov, the volunteers underwent combat training at the Russian University of Special Forces in Gudermes before being sent to the front.

Earlier, the working group on the special operation proposed to Russian President Vladimir Putin to extend to volunteers a number of benefits that are due to contract soldiers.

In particular, it is proposed to pay one-time assistance in the event of injury or death of a volunteer, to give them the right to a tax deduction for personal income tax, as well as property tax benefits.
