The death in Ukraine of Corporal of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation Valery Kovalenko pleased his aunt, who managed to embezzle 12 million rubles, and upset his sister and grandfather, who remained almost without than.
For the death in the war in Ukraine of 27-year-old corporal Valery Kovalenko, his family was entitled to a large payment – 12 million rubles (at the official rate of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation – about 6.5 million hryvnias). The state paid compensation, which the Russians called “coffin”, but this quarreled with the relatives of the Russian soldier, who were unable to share the money, write rossmi. Journalists learned about this story thanks to the sister of the deceased, who decided to publicize the family conflict in the hope of getting her share.
In what family did the deceased invader grow up?
The deceased corporal lived in a village in the Volgograd region . Valery Kovalenko's parents were deprived of parental rights, so he, along with his younger sister Lyubov, was raised by his grandfather Vladimir, and guardianship was issued to him. Kovalenko also has an aunt Lyubov Zhubrina.
The sister of the deceased said that the aunt from time to time took away part of the guardian's allowance from her grandfather, although she had no right to do so, and her children constantly came to visit, took away things and food, and also “poisoned” cousins and sister. The aunt considered the deceased a worthless person and did not love him at all.
Lyubov Kovalenko believes that because of this, her brother received psychological trauma in childhood, resentment sharpened him until the end of his life. For example, shortly before his death, he shared with her memories of how his family was forever deprived.
How did Kovalenko get into the army?
After leaving school, Valery graduated from cooking courses, then joined the army. According to his sister, he really liked the service, so he signed a contract. Once in Ukraine, the invader did not live long: on March 1, it became known about his death, and already on March 3, a funeral was organized, during which relatives were informed that Valery Kovalenko was posthumously awarded the Order of Courage.
During the funeral, the sister of the deceased drew attention to the strange behavior of her aunt Lyubov Zhubrina, who did not let her near the servicemen who accompanied the coffin. Kovalenko did not ask them for the fate of the “coffin”. However, she soon seriously thought about receiving compensation.
How did the aunt manage to appropriate the “coffin”?
According to Lyubov Kovalenko, her grandfather, as a guardian, was entitled to 12 million rubles “coffin”. However, she learned from him that he entrusted Zhubrina to receive compensation by issuing a general power of attorney for her. Now the occupier's sister is sure that the aunt simply took advantage of the state of the heartbroken old man and her absence: she was studying in a neighboring city.
The girl learned from her grandfather that in June, together with her aunt, he withdrew 2.9 million rubles from the card, and after receiving a power of attorney, Zhubrina already cashed out the rest of the funds alone: on June 10 – 4.4 million and on June 20 – 5 million.
“Grandfather was at a loss, he had grief, but Zhubrina had no grief,” says the sister of the deceased. , joyfully waving a power of attorney. People are ready to do anything for the sake of money and even go over the corpses, discrediting the honor of a soldier.”
How did the occupier's sister try to return the money?
Lyubov Kovalenko decided to seek justice in the police, but she was assured there that they did not see corpus delicti in this situation, so they refused to initiate a criminal case. Then the occupant's sister wrote a statement to the military registration and enlistment office, trying to get compensation for her dead brother. Judging by the date of her application – June 15, she hoped that the payment would simply be duplicated, but at the military registration and enlistment office the girl was told that she was not entitled to “coffin”.
On July 13, Lyubov Kovalenko, together with her grandfather, went to the prosecutor's office to write a complaint about the unfair distribution of “coffin”. The aunt of the deceased was also present there, who said that this was a family matter and that it should be dealt with at home. In response, Vladimir Kovalenko demanded that she no longer call him father. The sister of the deceased recorded their conversation.
