At the same time, the sanctions against many Russian officials will be supported in the EU and USA, so the responsible will have to go through double or even triple the pressure.

“We are now preparing a list of such officials of the Russian Federation, which must be applied personal sanctions in coordination with the international partners,” he said. In addition, the Cabinet of Ministers consider tighter sanctions for those who have contributed to the decline of citizens to obtain Russian passports – both verbally and with force.

Earlier it was reported that Russian citizenship to residents of the occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions, Russia will be distributed in three stages. This statement was made by Deputy Minister of the temporarily occupied territories and internally displaced persons Georgy Tuka.

According to him, the lists were drawn up not less than three months ago. In the first wave of applicants for Russian passports have to be fighters who are part of the first and second army corps of the so-called “LDNR”. In the second wave of the Russian citizenship will provide local officials, collaborators, and already in the end — others.

“”We need to understand what is the meanness of this step. Russia introduced amendments to its own legislation. It operates solely within its sovereignty, if not violate any international agreements and arrangements. The fact that this is not the spirit of the Minsk agreements — a political assessment, and from a legal point of view it is very difficult to involve the specific responsibility,” said Tuck.
