Ukraine president-elect Volodymyr Zelensky on Wednesday urged more international sanctions against Russia after Moscow made it easier for people living in occupied territories of Donbas to obtain Russian passports
Urgent meeting on Putin's decree to simplify issuing Russian passports in the temporarily occupied Donbas will be held at the U. N. Security Council Thursday 3 p.m. EST
[email protected] in a letter to UNSG: the decision by @KremlinRussia_E to issue Russian passports to Ukrainian citizens in the occupied territories of Ukraine is null and void. Ukraine calls on the international community to respond by increasing pressure on Russia.
Kurt Volker: Donbas is Ukraine and the people there - regardless of preferred language - are Ukrainian. Russia's recent decision to issue passports is highly provocative and is straight from its "occupation playbook" and undermines efforts to implement Minsk and restore Donbas to Ukrainian control.
