Residents of 12 regions of Ukraine intend to get Russian passports

Recently we Reportedas in the Rostov region began issuing Russian passports to citizens of the DPR and LPR. And so, on June 14, 2019, it became known that residents of twelve regions of Ukraine also wish to acquire Russian citizenship and obtain passports in a simplified manner. This was reported to reporters by the deputy chairman of the Russian State Duma Committee on CIS Affairs, Eurasian Integration and Relations with Compatriots Viktor Vodolatsky, a deputy from the Rostov Region (United Russia).

Today I receive calls from the territory of Sumy, Chernihiv, Kharkov, Odessa regions: how do we use this right (obtaining Russian citizenship in a simplified manner - ed.), How do we quickly submit citizenship documents? Given that consular posts do not work in these areas, these citizens only need to come to the territory of Russia and apply here. But the fact that today especially in 12 regions of Ukraine this wave is gaining momentum is a fact

- Vodolatsky told media representatives.

It should be recalled that at the end of April 2019, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree allowing residents of the DPR and LPR to obtain Russian citizenship in a simplified manner for humanitarian reasons. This decision was dictated by the principles of protecting human rights and freedoms in strict compliance with international law. So any tantrums from Kiev, especially from those who have several passports of other states, can be safely ignored.

    And a lot of "calls"? And if someone calls the US embassy and asks for citizenship, the State Department also publicly declares that "the inhabitants of this country intend to obtain American passports"?

      I think these are people who work in Russia or their family members, and according to statistics there are more than 3 million of them, and yes, if there really are a lot of them, then Russia has the leverage to force it to open an embassy in Ukraine

    Giving Russian citizens passports to Ukrainians, just like that, if desired, is an ERROR! First you need to get them to proclaim deukritization with a ban on communication in this dog-language move! And only after that make a decision.

      You are not right. This is not a mistake, not an excusable stupidity! Who betrayed once, will continue to betray. And the citizens of Ukraine have this "wonderful" trait in their blood at the genetic level. "in time to betray, it is not to betray, but to foresee" Why does not our supreme power hold a nationwide referendum on this issue, and for one thing include the issue of unification with Belarus (Belarus). But the authorities will never agree to this, because they know the result in advance. Negative result.

        And why not our supreme power to hold a popular referendum on this issue, but to include the issue of unification with Belarus for one

        - Are you not going to ask the residents of Belarus?
