For a month a Russian passport in a simplified manner received more than 10 thousand residents of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk national republics (DND and LNR). This was announced by Deputy Chairman of the Duma Committee on CIS Affairs, Eurasian integration and relations with compatriots Viktor Vodolatsky, reports TASS on Wednesday, July 17.

According to him, the Russian citizenship were able to issue only 10 to 320 people — 0.3 per cent of the total number of applicants, which currently stands at about 3.3 million. “It’s those people who are in cities and districts of Luhansk and Donetsk national republics, 99 percent want to receive passports of the Russian Federation”, — said the Agency interlocutor.

Vodolatsky also added that currently, despite the fact that the migration Department of the MIA of Russia, works in emergency mode, we need the extension of his staff, as local residents stand in large queues to submit the documents.

On 16 July it was reported that the residents of the DNI and LC will be able to obtain Russian passports, regardless of registration in any division of the migration. Age and place of incorporation are irrelevant if you receive a document, said the interior Ministry.

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on the facilitation of the issuance of the Donbass residents Russian passports on April 24th. Then he noted that this measure is of a purely humanitarian nature and is not intended to create problems for the Ukrainian authorities.
