According to a high-ranking source from the government of the Lugansk People’s Republic there is an office in Rostov-on-Don which will issue Russian passports to any citizen of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics until the end of the year.
The source reports says: “We have no choice – Ukraine has done everything to push Donbass away, and our people need to live. They need documents. And they will use Russian passports. At first the idea was to open offices directly in Donbass, but because Ukraine and Americans will make a fuss, it was decided to do it in Rostov”.
In addition the source claims that Moscow is working out who will receive the travel documents first. It seems that those who don’t have Ukrainian passports or have relatives in Russia can go through an accelerated procedure. The political leaders of the Novorossian republics will have to get them last.
