The European Union is deeply concerned about Russia’s continued issuance of passports in certain areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions (CADLR), which contradicts the Minsk Agreements and is a clear violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty.

“We are deeply concerned about the fact that Russia continues and has recently even accelerated its policy of mass issuance of passports to Ukrainian citizens in non-government-controlled areas of Ukraine. This policy contradicts the spirit and the objectives of the Minsk Agreements and is a clear violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty,” reads the statement made by the European Union during the OSCE Permanent Council meeting in Vienna.

The EU stated that the Kremlin’s policy is of particular concern given the statements attributed to high-level Russian officials evoking possible Russian military action as an alleged need to protect the interests of these newly passportized citizens.

“The European Union and its member states recall that they do not recognize these passports and call on other OSCE participating States to do so,” the statement says.

During the Council meeting, Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the International Organizations in Vienna Yevhenii Tsymbaliuk drew attention to the continuation of Russia’s issuance of passports in certain areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine. He pointed out that, according to statements by a Russian parliament member, about 1 million illegal Russian passports could be issued in CADLR by the end of 2021.

  • Thieving land by issuing passports is precisely what the putinazis did in Abkhazia and South Ossetia. The bastards got clean away with it, so they are repeating it in the occupied parts of Ukraine.
    In Abkhazia were some beautiful houses that had been in Georgian families for generations. They and all other Georgian homes were thieved by scum. Occupiers from putlerstan moved in. Either those remaining accepted putinazi passports or they were kicked out.
    Saakashvili did the best he could with very limited resources. If you drive on the highway past the city of Gori, you can see an entire refugee village of little homes that he built to house those victims of Russian imperialism. Elsewhere in Georgia, putler’s refugees are not so lucky: they can be seen living in derelict buildings with no utilities. Very sad and outrageous that the putinazis have not been punished for ruining so many people’s lives.

    “The European Union is deeply concerned…”
    Wow! Now we know that the EU is pissed. Or? We can expect some more dialogue with mafia land but with a raised finger!
