OSCE says self-proclaimed authorities in Luhansk region distribute “LPR passports”

The OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) to Ukraine reports its monitors saw a queue in the Russia-occupied town of Alchevsk in Luhansk region in which people were waiting for the issuance of “passports” of the self-proclaimed “Luhansk People’s Republic” (“LPR”) to obtain a Russian passport.

“In Alchevsk (non-government-controlled, 40km west of Luhansk), the SMM observed about 30 people (mixed ages and genders) queuing in front of a building, including a woman (35 years old) who told the Mission that she had been waiting for an hour and that only four or five applications were accepted by the office each day. A man (25 years old) told the SMM that he applies for a ‘passport’ issued by the armed formations in order to subsequently apply for a Russian Federation passport as he has lived and worked in the Russian Federation since 2014,” the OSCE SMM said in its report on Saturday, August 10.

Also, the OSCE SMM saw a woman (55 years old), a boy (14 years old) and three men (25-35 years old) coming out of the aforesaid building holding an “LPR passport” in their hands.

  1. Not exactly breaking the door down to receive this useless piece of paper. What is the use of a passport if it can’t be used in civilization?

  2. 4 applications per day per office………………………………….the Donbass people are really in a hurry to get these fake Russian passports……………..(eventhought 50% is turned down……………hahahah)

  3. It’s the Abkhazia business model. It shows that the scum are there to stay. Unless they are removed by force or crushing sanctions; neither of which are in the international agenda. Instead it looks as if Ukraine is about to capitulate, with the encouragement of Gospodin Trumpkov.

    • Next on the agenda, a massive provocation or false flag op, on the pretext
      of installing Russian “peacekeepers”

  4. They were queueing up for free bog roll.

    Probably stooges placed there for the occasion.

What is your opinion?
