Earlier, Ukraine's Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba stated that Russian passports, issued to residents of the occupied Donbas are "worthless pieces of paper". "Some take them for ideological reasons because they support Russia "right till the victorious end". Some get Russian passports relying on certain benefits in everyday life: they want to leave this place, to cross the border, and to get some payments. Some think of their security, fearing to find themselves on the "blacklist", in case they don't get the document offered by Russia", the Minister explained.
