Госдеп оценил реакцию Зеленского на паспорта РФ

Kurt Volker said that the newly elected President responded “very calmly and with humor” on Putin’s decree on Russian passports.

Ukraine’s President-elect Vladimir Zelensky responded “very calmly and with humor” the decision of Russia to give out passports to Ukrainians on uncontrollable Kiev territories of Donbass, and the US hopes that this will help the process of resolving the situation. This was stated by spetspriemnik the US State Department on Ukraine Kurt Volker in an interview with the BBC Russian service.

“We are concerned and consider it (Russia – Ed.) as a provocation, which is exactly contrary to the plan for the reintegration of these territories back to Ukraine, as stated in the Minsk agreements. You need to talk about the implementation of these agreements. I think the President Zelensky gave good to understand,” he said.

“It is obvious that to live in poverty in Russia – not so many people in the Donbass, who are just so-so Paradise. So I don’t think we should expect mass migration of people from Ukraine to Russia.

Zelensky reacted very calmly and with humor. And I hope it will cool this problem, so we can go back to talking about the actual implementation of agreements which already exist and which will require the withdrawal of foreign forces, the disarmament of illegal formations and the implementation steps for a ceasefire – such as the withdrawal of heavy weapons, and steps in the political sphere. And all this subsequently lead to the restoration of internationally recognized borders,” explained Walker.

We will remind, on April 24 Vladimir Putin has signed a decree on simplified poluchayetsya passports to the residents of certain districts of Luhansk and Donetsk regions of Ukraine. The corresponding document was published on the Kremlin website.

Earlier, the Deputy Minister of the temporarily occupied territories and internally displaced persons Yury Grymchak said that Ukraine will be able to identify the citizens who have Russian passports. Earlier he said that the residents of Donbass, who will receive a Russian passport, you need to deprive the Ukrainian and foreign passports of Ukraine.
