Dmytro Razumkov, the advisor of Volodymyr Zelensky stated that the peace on Donbas can be reached under the terms of Ukraine. Razumkov stated this on the air of the talk-show The Voice of the People on 112.Ukraine.
“Unfortunately, there is no such method to end the war tomorrow. But there is an idea of how to act in order to reach peace. Peace can only be reached under Ukraine’s conditions. If we follow Russia’s terms, peace can be reached even tomorrow, but I doubt that the patriots of Ukraine will accept those terms,” Razumkov stated.
Razumkov stated that the order on the issuance of the Russian passports to the Ukrainian citizens of Donbas is the recognition of aggression from the Russian party.
“In fact, it is recognition from the Russian Federation. Russia claimed they occupied Crime, this annexation they call a return to their homeland. At present they are confirming Russia is an aggressor state with this simplifying process of giving Russian citizenship,” Zelensky’s advisor added.
As it was reported, Russia wanted to facilitate the process of obtaining Russian citizenship for the residents of the so-called Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics after presidential elections in Ukraine. Putin’s decree was required for that.
Ukraine’s Ministry of Temporarily Occupied Territories and IDPs reported that people who get Russian passports will lose their Ukrainian citizenship.
