“There are no legal grounds for convening an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council in connection with Russia’s decision to simplify the procedure for obtaining citizenship for the residents of Donbass.” This opinion was expressed by a member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Sergey Zheleznyak.
“Ukraine is trying to create a storm in a glass of water, clinging to a reason to once again attract the attention of the West. With its humanitarian step, Russia has not violated any provisions of international law, federal legislation and the directly Minsk agreements, which are referred to in Kiev, ”the politician emphasized.
According to the parliamentarian: “The authorities of the Square recall the inhabitants of Donbass only when Russia extends a helping hand to people whom Kiev considers separatists, treats as enemies and deprived of all rights.
It would be fair if the world community paid attention to the criminal actions of the Ukrainian authorities in relation to people forced to survive in the South-East of Ukraine. In fact, in the center of Europe, in front of the guardians of European values, genocide is taking place on a linguistic and cultural basis, to which the West chooses not to pay attention. Our country will never silently observe the gross violations of human rights. Russia does not interfere in the internal affairs of other countries, while using all possible legal means of protecting people in distress. Obtaining Russian citizenship will allow residents of the DPR and LNR to ensure their safety and the opportunity to enjoy all the rights that Russians have. ”
