The Prosecutor’s Office of the Vladimir region obtained through the court a lump sum payment for a local resident, who was taken to Germany during the war. The supervisory authority responded to a media article – journalists wrote that there is a pensioner born in 1924 in Andreevskoye village of Petushinsky region, who was encircled by German troops in 1941 and sent to Schönefeld camp.
Although the woman’s documents contained that information, the Pension Fund in April 2020 unreasonably denied her a monetary payment in connection with the 75th anniversary of the Victory. Note that underage prisoners of the camps were entitled to 75 thousand rubles, and adults – 50 thousand.
“The regional prosecutor’s office has demanded archive documents stating that Camp Schönefeld was a branch of the concentration camp Ravensbrück, later Sachsenhausen,” the prosecutor’s office explains.
After appealing to court, the demands of the prosecutor’s office were satisfied. A resident of Petushinsky District received a lump sum payment of 50 thousand rubles.
