Ukrainians on the occupied territory who have received Russian passports will not be able to use the visa-free regime with the EU, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said.

On May 15 evening on the air of the ICTV television channel, answering a question on whether there will be a possibility for residents of the occupied territories to obtain biometric passports more easily, Poroshenko said: “Citizens of the occupied territories will not be more comfortable than citizens of the rest of Ukraine.” According to Poroshenko, Ukrainians who received Russian citizenship “will have serious difficulties in obtaining a biometric passport.”

“Because a person in the occupied territory, a person in the annexed Crimea should choose if they want to be a citizen of Ukraine or a citizen of the aggressor country,” the president said.
