Ukraine has no claims against the majority of citizens of Crimea and Donbas who have received Russian passports. This was stated by Ukraine's Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories Oleksiy Reznikov on the air of ICTV TV channel, RBC reported.
"By the way, among other things, we are integrating an idea to the transitional justice regime that most people who have received these passports in Crimea and Donbas are hostages. This is their way of survival. The Ukrainian state has no claims against them," said Reznikov.
According to him, 200,000 residents of the occupied Donbas received Russian passports. The Ukrainian state can have claims only against the collaborators - those who served the occupying power. These people will definitely be held accountable, the deputy prime minister stressed.
As we reported earlier, officers of Russia's law enforcement bodies started conducted searches in the premises of the Crimean Tatars located in different parts of the annexed Crimea.
