Mass distribution of Russian passports to residents of the occupied territories of Donbass was canceled after the victory of Volodymyr Zelensky in the first round of the presidential election of Ukraine. This was written in social networks by creator of the terrorist Vostok Battalion Alexander Khodakovsky.
According to him, the informally spread information about the total passportization of residents of the "DNR/LNR" was launched in the event of potential victory of candidate Petro Poroshenko. The militant is outraged by this approach of Russian politicians.
"The whole limit of our influence - we will give passports to the LDNR - we will not give passports to the LDPR. The situation changed - they felt silent about the passports. Poroshenko had won - we would have issued, Zelensky wins - we will wait for a while, - in case we will manage to agree", - he states his version of story with Russian passports.
"If to distract to the story with passports, from the very beginning, I was irritated that it was decided not from love for people, not as an experienced half-measure, but as another receiver of influence on the case of a certain scenario. And all was done behind the scenes… They have already prepared the forms, our interior ministers have been set the task of preparing databases, the topic has been highlighted by the mouths of unofficial persons even on the federal media - but they have not announced it officially, as if leaving a place for a maneuver", - Khodakovsky is indignant.
