Foreign Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin during a meeting with Foreign Minister of Germany Heiko Maas discussed Kremlin's decision to simplify the procedure for granting Russian citizenship to Ukrainians living in occupied territories in Donbas.

The Mission of Ukraine to the European Union wrote this on Twitter.

“Foreign Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin held a meeting with Foreign Minister of Germany Heiko Maas. One of the main issues discussed: Russia’s passport aggression,” reads the report.

As reported, Foreign Minister Klimkin will be on a working visit in Brussels on May 13-14 to take part in a series of events dedicated to the tenth anniversary of the Eastern Partnership initiative.

On April 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree according to which residents of certain areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions may apply for a simplified procedure for obtaining a Russian passport.
