One tactic that works in the fight against criminal elements is the concept of a reward. You give someone an extraordinary amount of money to give up another person that has been accused or convicted of wrongdoing.
Well, Vladimir Putin has just taken it to the next level by offering the highest ever reward by a government, including the reward that America put on information leading to the whereabouts of Osama Bin Laden.
According to CNN Money,
The reward offered by Russia is one of the highest ever placed on wanted terrorists. It is double the amount that was offered by the U.S. government for information about Osama bin Laden.
Metrojet flight 9268 crashed over the Sinai region of Egypt two weeks ago. The passenger jet was brought down by a bomb estimated to contain 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds) of explosives, Russia’s Federal Security Service said Tuesday.
“We will search wherever they may be hiding. We will find them anywhere on the planet and punish them,” Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a statement.
The Russian government is offering the unusually high reward to anyone who can lead the investigators to those responsible for bringing the plane down.
Russia has previously offered a bounty of $10 million for two Chechen rebel leaders. The highest reward offered by the FBI was $25 million for al Qaeda leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri.
It’s a life-changing amount of money and I wish Russia the best of luck in finding and eliminating these ISIS targets. We’ll all be better off without them in the world.
What would you do with $54 million?
