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.
Viktor Medvedchuk assures that the "DNR/LNR" leaders supported his "peaceful plan" of returning the occupied Donbass to Ukraine on the basis of broad autonomy and full amnesty. The head of the political council Opposition Platform - For Life told this in a comment to the NEWSONE TV channel.
Residents of occupied Dokuchaievsk report about the blocked highway to Donetsk and "drill" in the city. They write this in social networks: "They said at the checkpoint that the city is closed for a day. They do not say the reason", "We will continue to survive. One way or another. It is a temporary inconvenience with the highway, we hope. It is more difficult with water", "Still, this is not normal. What people who need to go to work, to doctors in Donetsk, where everything is by appointment, should do? Someone had plans and bought tickets to Russia or Ukraine, anything can happen". At the same time, residents of the occupied city note that there is a "drill" and people in camouflage go door to door.
