SORRY: Russian Tanks Are NOT For Sale On eBay
Not real good on gas millage. But if you live in a state like Wyoming you'll have no problem getting through that winter snow.
OH SORRY - This is FAKE NEWS!
BUT HOLD ON! Abandoned Russian military equipment is TAX-FREE in Ukraine. Read on and I'll explain.
There is a story going around that you can buy Russian tanks on eBay. How many of us WISH we could, but no.
I checked because I want one. There is not a genuine listing on eBay.
This picture looks legit. But it does not show a Russian tank that was recently seized by Ukrainians. While this photograph does appear to show a Russian T-72 tank, this picture has been online since at least 2010.
This is a joke listing.
It is true that Ukrainians have truly taken possession of several Russian tanks that were abandoned during the country’s attack on Ukraine.
One video shows a farming tractor towing these heavy pieces of military equipment down the street.
In the meantime, the Ukrainian government has let everyone in their nation know that what is left behind by the Russian military is "TAX-FREE!"
That's right Ukraine, no need to declare captured Russian tanks or military gear on your taxes.
Ukraine’s National Agency for the Protection against Corruption (NAPC) has declared that captured Russian tanks and other equipment are not subject to declaration.
“Have you captured a Russian tank or armored personnel carrier and are worried about how to declare it? Keep calm and continue to defend the Motherland! There is no need to declare the captured Russian tanks and other equipment, because the cost of this … does not exceed 100 living wages (UAH 248,100),” NAPC’s press service said.
Also, there is no need in this case to submit reports of significant changes in property status within 10 days.
“Speaking by the letter of the law, combat trophies are not subject to reflection in the declaration for the following reasons: they were acquired not as a result of the conclusion of any type of transaction, but in connection with the full-scale aggression of the Russian Federation on February 24, 2022 against the independent and sovereign Ukrainian state as a continuation the insidious attack of the Russian Federation on Ukraine launched in 2014.
Thanks to the courage and victory of the defenders of the Ukrainian state, enemy military equipment usually comes to you already destroyed and disabled, which makes it impossible to evaluate it in accordance with the law On the valuation of property, property rights and professional valuation activities in Ukraine.
Therefore, it is also impossible to find out how much such property costs,” the NACP said.
