Residents of the occupied Donbas who get the passports of the Russian Federation will be considered eligible for military duty in the Russian Army, as 24 TV channel reported.
According to the report, the citizens of Ukraine who live on the occupied territories of Luhansk and Donetsk regions should get the passport of the pseudo-republic first in order to get the Russian ID.
After receiving the citizenship of the ‘republic’, they will be enlisted for military service.
In the self-proclaimed 'DNR', there is a law on a military obligation, which provides for service in military formations for the citizens of the pseudo-republic.
Besides, the dual citizenship of the pseudo-republic does not free the citizen from performing military duty.
