USA condemns Russia’s decree on issuing passports to Donbas residents

USA condemns Russia’s decree on issuing passports to Donbas residents

In a move which was immediately criticized by President-elect Volodymyr Zelenskiy, Ukraine's parliament passed a law making Ukrainian the only official language in the country, making it the mandatory language for all public sector workers.

Russian citizenship rights to Ukrainians amount to a "creeping annexation" of east Ukraine and "consolidation of the total Russian control over the occupied territories", he said.

Yelchenko reiterates the goal of the Minsk agreements is reintegration of the temporarily occupied areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions into the legal, political and economic space of Ukraine.

According to thae statement, the Russian decree is unacceptable and once again demonstrates the Russian authorities' lack of respect for the sovereignty of Ukraine and the worldwide law.

Putin said on Thursday that Moscow was willing to work with Zelenskiy if he implemented the full terms of the 2015 truce agreements, brokered in the Belarus capital Minsk with worldwide support.

She urged the parties "to undertake steps that would decrease the current tensions and allow the resumption of constructive dialogue".

The European Union condemned Russia's move on Thursday, calling it another attack by Moscow on Ukraine's sovereignty.

"Against the prevailing risky trajectory over the past five years, it is our honest hope that at long-last, a new positive dynamic can emerge" she said. He called for the worldwide community to threaten Russian Federation with more sanctions.

The UN 2019 Humanitarian Response Plan, aims to provide 2.3 million people with "protection and assistance to restore their access to livelihoods, essential services and critical infrastructure", she said, but so far only 9 per cent of the funding has been received. "The people of Ukraine deserve nothing less".

She described the move as "another attack on Ukraine's sovereignty by Russian Federation".

Kurz says Austria is one of the largest investors in Ukraine and therefore is strongly interested in good economic development of the country.

"It is not enough to mitigate the effects of the divide", said the Special Representative of the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office in Ukraine and in the Trilateral Contact Group.
