Russia accepts “DNR”, “LNR” documents as Ukrainian passports
Russian authorities did not grant residents of self-proclaimed republics simplified migration rules
The migration rules for citizens who received “DNR”, “LNR” passports are the same as for residents of the so-called “DNR” and “LNR” residents. They can stay on Russian territory without a permit for not more than 90 days, after that they must leave the country for 90 days.
This was reported by RBC, referring to two interlocutors from State Duma. This was also confirmed by the representative of the migration department of the Interior Ministry and a member of Human Rights Council under the President and by the representative of “LNR”.
In mid-March this question was discussed at the meeting of representatives of Duma’s committee on CIS and law enforcement bodies, according to one of the deputies.
“We were surprised that “DNR”and “LNR” residents had to leave the country every 90 days. People did not know about it,” the interlocutor complains.
Earlier it was reported that Russia set conditions for it to stop accepting “DNR, LNR” passports. Among them is the demand to stop ATO and to establish special status of Donbas.
