The DPR and LPR residents need to be provided with the Russian passports in circumvention of the existing rules, declared the chairman of the CIS (the Commonwealth of Independent States) affairs' committee Leonid Kalashnikov.
"The Ukrainians residents in order to obtain our citizenship should refuse their own and receive a certificate. Who will issue a certificate in Donbass today? We should change the legislation and approaches. It is necessary to wend the way that we have used in some already independent states where the majority has the Russian citizenship. That's why it is necessary to start working," Kalashnikov said.
According to him, the State Duma's deputies count on the Russian Foreign Ministry's assistance.
"There is a real trouble there, people are afraid that tomorrow they will be alone again," he added.
