also sabotage and subversion" from certain representatives of local

"It has been allocated
billions from the budget to each family in need to cover an appropriate amount of
subsidy. People get a payment bill worth a thousand hryvnias,

people hear lie, they are deliberately dissuaded from applying for a subsidy
and money is pulled out of the pockets of Ukrainian citizens, the money provided

Security Service of Ukraine and the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine “to

the citizens of the country."
