German media suspected Russian President Vladimir Putin of preparing an attack on Ukraine, referring to the decree on simplifying the procedure for issuing Russian passports for residents of the DPR and LPR.
Russian President Vladimir Putin allegedly intends to start the “next phase of the war” in Ukraine. This writes the publication Bild.
Journalists refer to the decision of the Russian leader to sign a decree that simplifies the procedure for registration of Russian citizenship for residents of the DPR and LPR. In addition, Putin urged to extend the initiative to all other citizens of Ukraine.
At the same time, Ukraine, the USA, Germany, and the EU condemned the signed decree. According to the publication, the President of Russia allegedly chose the right moment to strike, when in Kiev there is a change of presidents.
“If Russia considers that its citizens are in danger – in the West of Ukraine including – that it won’t stop before new interventions”, – claim in mass media.
The new President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky said that he is supposedly ready to grant citizenship to all who “suffer from authoritarian and corrupt regimes.” However, Vladimir Putin said that if the Ukrainians and Russians will be common citizenship, it will benefit both of people.
