President Vladimir Putin marked an announcement on Wednesday that makes it simpler for those living in eastern Ukraine’s rebel regions to get to a Russian international ID.
The move is viewed as a test to Volodmyr Zelensky, the previous humorist chose president this end of the week.
In a Facebook post, Zelensky’s group has named Russia “an assailant state which takes up arms against Ukraine”.
Mr Putin said the new law is “simply a compassionate issue”.
The declaration is gone for individuals living in the unrecognized republics of Donetsk and Luhansk, seized by Russian-upheld separatists in 2014 after Russia attached Crimea from Ukraine.
Mr Putin said individuals living in these regions were “totally denied of social liberties” and proved unable “move regularly” or “understand their most basic needs”.
“We want to make issues for the new Ukrainian experts,” Mr Putin included.
