For humanitarian purposes, he will determine the groups of foreign citizens and stateless persons entitled to a Russian passport under a simplified procedure.

Deputies of the lower house of the Russian parliament passed a law that empowers Russian President Vladimir Putin with new authority to determine the groups of foreign citizens and stateless persons entitled to a Russian passport under a simplified procedure for humanitarian purposes.

Commenting on the initiative earlier, the head of the State Duma, Vyacheslav Volodin, highlighted that the issue in question is particularly acute in Ukraine, “where our former compatriots are kept hostage of political adventurism” of the Kiev ruling elite and the civil war unleashed by the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the Donbass conflict.
