Earlier, in April 2019, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree “On the definition for humanitarian purposes of the categories of people entitled to apply for Russian citizenship in a simplified manner”. According to the decree, such a right is granted to persons permanently residing in the territories of certain regions of Donetsk and Lugansk regions of Ukraine.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine strongly protested the start of the functioning of the centers for issuing passports of the Russian Federation to citizens of Ukraine on the territory of the Rostov Region of the Russian Federation and called on the international community not to recognize such documents.
At the same time, in May, the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov said that Russia would continue to issue passports to residents of Donbass, even if they were not recognized by the Ukrainian leadership.
