Russia speeds up issuing passports to Crimeans

A great comment from Dima Zolotukhin about a report that Russia plans to speed up its issuing of Russian passports to Crimeans:

“When somebody wants to live in UK, he moves to UK. When somebody wants to live in Australia, he moves there. When somebody wants to go to Cuba – no problem! Only when somebody in Ukraine wants to live in Russia, does he expect to do that without leaving his bedroom.”

Russia May be preparing to Annex Crimea

  1. Incidentally, dual passports are against both Ukrainian and Russian law, so Ukrainian citizens who take out a Russian passport need to hand in their Ukrainian one. They then become foreign nationals on Ukrainian territory and can no longer freely work or own farmland. They can be deported if they do not arrange for permanent residency or at least a visitor visa.
