Caucasus (bbabo.net), - The decision of the EU, which approved the non-recognition of Russian passports issued in the DPR and LPR, Zaporozhye and Kherson regions, South Ossetia and Abkhazia, is discriminatory against millions of people who have made a choice in favor of Russian citizenship, said Ministry of Foreign Affairs of South Ossetia.
“Instead of objectivity and impartiality, preserving and promoting the freedoms and rights of citizens, enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948 and other international documents, the EU regulation arbitrarily imposes restrictions on movement, ignoring international law and deliberately destroying its fundamental principles,” the statement says. comments of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of South Ossetia.
Tskhinval regards the prohibitive measures taken on the non-recognition of Russian travel documents as a gross violation of generally recognized norms, aimed, among other things, at "serving the interests of Georgia in its policy of isolating South Ossetia."
More than 90% of the inhabitants of South Ossetia also have Russian citizenship.
