The official Russia’s recognition of the so-called "documents", issued by the self-proclaimed authorities of terrorist "DPR" and "LPR", contradicts the aims of Minsk negotiation process. This was reported on Twitter page of the U.S. Embassy to Ukraine.

"Russian recognition of documents from separatist "republics" troubling and inconsistent with agreed goals of Minsk," the message of diplomatic department reads.


Beyond that, the embassy expressed concern over increased military activity in Donbas and use of Grads along the contact line. US called for withdrawal of heavy weapons and adhering to extended ceasefire regime.


As 112 International reported earlier, the Russian Federation recognized as valid passports issued by the authorities of the so-called DNR and LNR. The corresponding decree was signed by Russian President Vladimir Putin and later posted on the website of the Russian President.
