It's officially been a Month now and no rewards for the Russia challenge.
As the title says, the rewards were rolled out a month ago and two weeks since it was announced that everyone who even reviewed a Russian nomination would get rewarded. I still haven't gotten anything. I didn't think I would be punished for choosing rural Russia to review but here we are.
I fulfilled the said requirements, I set my home location to a random spot in rural Russia, reviewed a couple dozen nominations. It's a slap in the face for me, a person who's done 28,000 reviews and has an Ingress and PoGo account with the ability to submit stops to not get the rewards after a month. I have 45 nominations still in queue that still need to be processed and these rewards were going to help slim down those numbers.
