UN urges Ukraine to recognize DPR and LPR documents

The UN Mission is concerned about the norms that provide for the general non-recognition of documents issued in the territory of the Republics. The Mission called for the application of the international practice of recognizing the facts of birth and death.

This is stated in the 20th report of the UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine.

In the report it was also noted that the Ukrainian law on Donbass lacks clarity on the aspects of ensuring the protection of the rights and freedoms of the DPR and LPR citizens.

Let us recall, on February 18, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on the recognition in the Russian Federation of documents and plates of vehicles issued to citizens of Ukraine and stateless persons permanently residing in the territories of certain areas of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions of Ukraine.
