Number of applications for LPR IDs doubles as Russia recognizes Republican civil documents
The number of applications for LPR passports has doubled since Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a degree on recognition of Donbass documents, said LPR Minister of Interior Igor Kornet.
"Of course there was a rise of interest. The number of applications for LPR passports has doubled."
"The same is true for registering vehicles," he added.
Kornet said the working days of migration service now include Saturday because of the number of applications.
President Vladimir Putin ordered Russian authorities to temporarily recognise civil registration documents issued in LPR and DPR.
According to the order Russia temporarily recognises identity documents, diplomas, birth and marriage certificates and vehicle registration plates issued in the Republics.
