In addition, the invaders in the occupied territories of the Luhansk region have tightened the requirements for the population when applying for a job and making social payments. The occupiers are increasingly demanding, in addition to the passport of the Russian Federation, also renunciation of Ukrainian citizenship.

On March 14, the State Duma of the Russian Federation adopted a law according to which citizens of Ukraine who received Russian passports in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine can renounce Ukrainian citizenship after submitting relevant applications to the Russian authorities.

The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said that in this way the Russian Federation is trying to legitimize the attempt to annex the occupied Ukrainian territories and the illegal passportization of their inhabitants.
