KIEV, May 12. /TASS/. Kiev-appointed head of the Luhansk regional state administration Gennady Moskal has banned residents of the Luhansk and Donetsk people’s republics from crossing the demarcation line with passports of the self-proclaimed republics, Moskal’s official website said.
It said Ukrainian law enforces would be immediately seizing these documents at border crossing points by, adding that "the demarcation line [dividing Kiev-controlled territory and areas held by self-defence forces] can be crossed in both directions only with the Ukrainian passport".
In earlier reports, Tass said that on May 5, 10 school students of the LPR reaching the age of 16 were the first to get the new passports.
Republic’s deputy interior minister said the passports were made in accordance with all requirements of international law, adding that it was a very important move for DPR, "proving its independence".
Igor Markov also said the new passports would be issued only for school students reaching 16 or those residents of the republic who lost their passports amid combat operations in the troubled region.
