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.
