MOSCOW – Russian chemical company Fores is offering a reward to soldiers who can destroy M1 Abrams and Leopard 2 tanks in Ukraine.
The news comes after Washington and Berlin agreed to deliver the battle tank to Kiev last week.
“Russian servicemen who destroy or seize a German Leopard 2 or American Abrams battle tank will receive a monetary reward,” the company said on its website on Friday (27/1/2023).
“Fores will pay 5 million rubles (Rp 1 billion) for the first trophy. The payment for each subsequent one … will be 500,000 rubles ($1,000).”

The company added, “If Ukraine acquires the F-15 and F-16 fighter jets, Fores will award a 15 million rubles ($3.5 million) prize for the first plane to crash.”
“The decision to transfer Western tanks to Kyiv demonstrates that NATO is not only delivering defensive weapons to Ukraine, which highlights the need for consolidation and support for our army,” the company said.
The company explained, “We have been doing this since day one of the (Russian) special military operation and will continue to support our servicemen.”
Founded in 2000, Fores makes and sells proppant, the coarse substance oil and gas companies use for fracking, according to its website. The company’s office is in Ekaterinburg, Russia.
