The militants demand from the citizens of Ukraine who live in occupied Donbas and who got the passports after April 2014 to ‘legalize’ in the so-called Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) as Novosti Donbassa reported.
The issue is about ‘the order’ of Denis Pushilin, the ‘head’ of the DPR, which obliges the citizens of Ukraine who got the Ukrainian passport after April 7, 2014, and living in the territory of occupied Donbas to process ‘DPR passport’.
The document says that the citizens of Ukraine will get ‘address certificates’, which act only for six months. They were issued earlier to ‘legalize’ Ukrainian passports.
After the passing of such a procedure, a person obtains a right, for example, to process a plastic card at the local financial establishments to get payments or the possibility to study at the education establishments controlled by DPR.
Thus, starting from July 31, 2020, ‘address certificates’ will be issued in case a person filed documents to get ‘DPR passport’ or impossibility to get it. Until the expiration of a certificate, a person should possess ‘DPR passport’ if he/she is registered in the territory of Donetsk region or lives in occupied Donbas.
As we reported, the criminal proceeding is opened due to the fact of the forcible ‘pasportization’ of the citizens of Ukraine in the uncontrolled territories of the Luhansk region (Luhansk People’s Republic, LPR).
