Vladimir Bidyovka: Exemption from payment of state duty for admission to Russian citizenship opens up new opportunities for Republic
On April 24, the Chairman of the DPR’s People’s Council Vladimir Bidyovka made a statement prior to a plenary session regarding an exemption from a payment of state duty for admission to Russian citizenship by people, who reside in the territory of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics.
In particular, the parliamentarian speaker expressed confidence that this decision would contribute to the further integration of the Republics of Donbass with Russia.
ʺI welcome the decision of Russian parliamentarians and Vladimir Putin to exempt people residing in the territory of the Republics from paying state duty for the admission to citizenship of the Russian Federation.
I can confidently say that this step is not only a confirmation of the strengthening of integration processes with the Russian Federation, but also an indicator of who is really concerned about the fate of people in the international community, and who violates all norms of state and international law in favor of political games.
Donbass knows and has always known that it is a part of the big Motherland – Russia. Today, it is reflected not just in a sense of belonging to a part of the Russian world, but also in obtaining long-awaited passports that confirm our choice. I believe that the exemption from paying the state duty for the admission to citizenship of the Russian Federation opens new opportunities for every citizen of our Republic to restore historical justice,ʺ Vladimir Bidyovka said.
Also, the chairman of the People’s Council expressed gratitude to the government of the Russian Federation, deputies of the State Duma and personally Vladimir Putin for adopting this decision.
ʺOn my behalf and behalf of all the residents of Donbass, I would like to thank the Russian president and parliamentarians for their support and understanding. This is a truly fateful decision for all of us,ʺ the parliamentarian speaker said.
