350 thousand new citizens: mass issuance of passports of the Russian Federation changes the alignment in Donbass

In the summer of 2019, the humanitarian issuance of Russian passports to residents of the LPR and DPR began. The process became widespread and changed political alignment in the Donbass. Hundreds of thousands of Russian citizens now live there, which greatly complicates the conduct of any offensive operation of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. Artyom Olkhin, Deputy Minister of Information of the DPR, announced this on the air of the program "Point of View" of the TV channel "First Republican".

According to the functionary, the West needs Ukraine as an instrument of influence on Russia. Western "partners" are interested in blood flowing in Donbass as long as possible and the more there is, the better for them. However, the high-ranking Ukrainian military is well aware of the consequences of rash actions.

The Ukrainian generals are not very aggressive, because they understand that the time of arrival of some things from the Russian Federation is very short. Now there are already more than 300 thousand Russian citizens. This is a completely different conversation

- explained the official.

We are no longer talking about some "green men" or, as the Ukrainians joke, "ichtamnets" and Russia will begin to solve our problems under the guise of a militia - I'm not talking about that now. I'm talking about the fact that no one will let you calmly destroy several hundred thousand Russian citizens who live here

- he added.

Olkhin is very skeptical about the future prospects of Ukraine. He believes that the West has already understood who it is dealing with and appreciated all the "advantages" of the current Ukrainian government.

If you want to see how everything is stolen up to the ruble or dollar, then give Ukraine another loan and watch how it happens

- summed up Olkhin.

Note that on October 1-14, 2019, a census of the population of the republics took place in the LPR and DPR. According to preliminary (unofficial) data, 2 million 270 thousand people live in the DPR, and 1 million 500 thousand people live in the LPR, that is, only 3,77 million people. However, the UN estimates the total population of the LPR and DPR at 2 million 800 thousand people (according to the consumption of bread, applications for pensions and other indicators). The authorities of the republics promised to publish the final results of the census on official information resources by March 31, 2021.

According to the information of the official representative of the LPR in the political group at the Minsk talks, Rodion Miroshnik, at the end of December 2020, 357 thousand residents of both republics, from among permanent residents of their territory, were admitted to the citizenship of the Russian Federation (173 thousand - LPR and 184 thousand - DNR). In addition, more than 100 thousand people from Donbass received passports of the Russian Federation under a simplified program and permanently reside in Russian territory.

    Received passports - then what? Is it a guarantee that the Armed Forces won't go to clear the territory? And that's it! And enjoy a life like in Transnistria? That is, the elite will "burn through" their lives, and the rest should be content that they are not dying of hunger? "Interesting movie." Well, why such power?

        You personally, you can answer: "What's next?" After all, Putin is not going to recognize Donbass and join it too! Turn on the brain, and do not be rude!

          I support. This has been going on for seven years, people are dying, the bullet does not look at the passport. The multi-move is prostitution, the Minsk agreements are the return of Donbass to Ukraine. We must not brag about super weapons, but give an ultimatum to Ukraine about its use.

    Does the Russian pension fund pay pensions to these new citizens?

      For the Pension Fund, the main criterion for calculating a pension is now not the presence of work experience, but the existence of insurance experience .... there were insurance payments to the Pension Fund from earnings - there will be a pension, there was no Indian dwelling wigwam.

      Does the Russian pension fund pay pensions to these new citizens?

      Pay social, about 10 rubles. And not only from our PF. Theirs also pay the same. For them, this is happiness. By the way, now the standard of living of low-income citizens in the LDNR has become higher than in Ukraine. Especially, taking into account the soaring tariffs for gas, heat, electricity in / on. Soon all Ukraine will look at the LDNR with envy.

        No, the RF Pension Fund does not pay. The Pension Fund of Ukraine pays, plus the LPR DPR pays something extra. It is encouraging that low-income groups of the population live better. It is bad that there are no other groups, except for low-income groups of the population.

    unrecognized by Russia for the 7th year of education, but living entirely at the expense of the Russian budget, like Abkhazia, South Ossetia, Transnistria. Russia is a generous soul.

    It is time for Russia to stop spawning all sorts of unrecognized republics, and those that exist should be included in the Russian Federation and used for the purposes of the Russian Federation, putting in a tough order there.

Soon they will start issuing passports to the Chinese, Hindus and necessarily South Africans laughing Sweet lies are always nicer than harsh truths
