European Union won’t recognize passports, issued by Russia to Ukrainians

The European Union condemns Vladimir Putin’s decision to expedite citizenship procedures for all citizens of Ukraine and will not recognize these documents.

“The European Union strongly condemns the Russian Presidential decrees of May 25 and May 30, simplifying the process for granting Russian citizenship and issuing Russian passports to Ukrainian citizens of Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions which are temporarily under the military control of Russian invading troops, as well as to Ukrainian children without parental care and legally incapacitated persons from Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions. The European Union will not recognize these passports, issued as part of Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine,” said Borrell.
