Citizens deported by the Russian Federation from Ukraine will be allowed into the country without documents.

This was stated by Vice Prime Minister – Minister for Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories Irina Vereshchuk on the air of the informational telethon.

The country wants to create routes by which Ukrainians will be able to return from Estonia and Latvia – countries where the largest number of deported citizens of Ukraine got out of the Russian Federation. 

“We are now developing routes along which free vehicles will run to help Ukrainians without money and without passports. There are simply no passports, they are taken away in these filtration camps. We will help get to Ukraine,” Vereshchuk said.

Despite the fact that the Ukrainian border with the Russian Federation is now closed, Ukraine has an agreement with the border guards: they will allow citizens without identity documents to pass if they reach the border.

“The main thing is to find a way to return home, call us – we will help with tickets, with passport documents,” she stressed.

Earlier it was reported that a coordinating headquarters was created in Ukraine to protect the rights of deported persons .

  1. This is the only sensible thing that Ukraine can do at this point to help its citizens to return.
    Maybe Ukraine can hand the cockroach army such a complete defeat that other options will be open to return its citizens.

  2. Ukraine, a country that exists for its’ citizens, not the other way around.

What is your opinion?
