"About 20.5-21 thousand biometric passports are issued per day. It’s absolute record. As it’s how our people work, they do everything at the last second and like their life depends on that. That's why there are large queues everywhere," the minister said.
He expressed hope that this situation will be settled after a sitting of the Coordination Council, which will be held under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman on Monday and Tuesday.
