PThe second page of the passport can be filled with regional language. Citizens are entitled to the second page of the passport not completed in Russian or in Ukrainian passport there can be no Russian language.

As stated in the story, few know that the Ukrainian may require that the second page of the passport filled with the language of national minorities or regional. The failure of Ukrainian have the right to go to court.

It is scandalous in law language "Kivalova-Kolisnichenko" says that Ukraine passport or document that replaces, and information about its owner, made to him in the State language and there, at the option of one of the regional languages or national minorities of Ukraine.

Now in Lviv passport offices in another language other than Ukrainian and Russian passport is not filled. Governed by the orders of the Interior Ministry in 2012. According to him, the information on the second page of the passport is written only in Russian.

The Lviv Regional Department of Migration Service explained: two years, the government has not adopted regulations for the controversial law. So as how to fulfill the law - is unknown.

It has taken the Marxists and their pals over 100 years of hard work to overrun this nation and its institutions. To think that they would give it all up because of an election or two is naive to the max. They will only go down in pools of blood, ours or theirs.

THis is what is fueling, in part, the revolutions in Donetsk and Luhansk. More Ukrainians use Russian in their homes than use Ukrainian. But the official policy of the Ukraine is to impose Ukrainian-only on the people.

Oddly, only a third describe Russian as their primary language, but this is because to use Russian is to be deemed a Soviet wanna-be, so they fill out in surveys that Ukrainian is their primary language, even if they fill out in other surveys that they are more fluent in Russian.

Only 5% of media sources are in Russian. No colleges or universities conduct general-ed classes in Russian. Russian speakers face severe discrimination in employment even in Russian-dominated regions. And yet Ukranians are furious that they have to look at one page of Russian text in their passport?

That’s not what is being protested here. They just want to completely obliterate all traces of Russian culture in their program of Ukrainization.

You may be somewhat mixing issues:

Crimeans did want to have Russian passports. 96% voted for it in an 1996 election that was certified by Kiev. Kiev responded by suspending their parliament, firing their president/governor and implementing autocratic control from Kiev. (Did you know that those sick monsters that you love did that? There’s a reason Crimeans hate Kiev, and desperately wanted to leave.) Russia was in favor of offering them the passports.

Further, Russia would like to expand its Customs Union to include the Ukraine. This isn’t quite the same as issuing “Russian” passports to the Ukraine, but it would result in a uniform passport.

No, that is NOT what is being said. I have gathered more info to broaden understanding of the situation:

1. Citizens that do NOT want Russian on passports, do not have to have their info written in Russian on 2nd page. Those that prefer may.

2. Many youtube videos as well as articles have been presented on Free Republic stating Russian born citizens are NOT discriminated or prevented from speaking Russian.

3. This article may be helpful:

“Crimeans forced to change citizenship.

Mustafa Jemilev UNIAN Jemilev told who now live under the Crimean Tatars Crimean Tatars living in Crimea and renounce citizenship of Russia, dismissed or forced to obtain Russian passports. This was on “Public TV” said lawmaker Mustafa Jemilev. “The situation in Crimea depressing. People do not know what to do.

Crimean Tatars Those who do not want to become citizens, in fact, make, because if they did not obtain Russian passports, they can not get a job,” - said one the leaders of the Crimean Tatars. See also: Ukrainians in Crimea complain that they forcibly impose citizenship of

“Those who refuse to take passports - are starting to turn away. During question the right of ownership” - added Jemilev. As previously reported, the Ukrainian Crimea complain that they can not get sotsvyplaty and feel abandoned.”


The period during which the on-demand occupation Crimeans had to determine the desired citizenship expires today, according TSN.Ranok.

From the April 18 residents of autonomy, which is not written application for preservation Ukrainian citizenship AUTOMATICALLY Moscow deems Russians.
In the Migration Service of Russia reported that such applicants in the Crimea only fifteen hundred.

Instead, most inhabitants of the peninsula claim that is simply not willing to take the time to document that the occupation authorities make a deliberately difficult process. Points [offices across Crimea] where you can register a declaration of autonomy only four [offices] open. And everyone gathered around the huge stage in which people defend a few days.

Meanwhile, in Ukraine, the Parliamentary Commissioner for Human Rights in the Constitutional Court of Ukraine Iryna Kushnir said the Crimeans in occupied Crimea will have refugee status. They will enjoy all the rights of citizens of Ukraine will receive a pension, provided that they do not get them in. They were also left all property rights, they will be eligible to vote.
Recall, April 16 in the evening on the Crimean Peninsula on the part of the Kerch ferry began to arrive en masse and Russian military technics .

The Russian Revolution was actually many mini-revolutions in 1917. The Ukrainian People’s Republic or Ukrainian National Republic-Ukraine began the modern Ukraine on 23 June 1917.

The Ukraine began first as a part of the Russian Republic after the Russian Revolution BUT THEN FULLY proclaimed its INDEPENDENCE on 25 January 1918.

HOWEVER, with the 18 March 1921 Treaty of Riga between the Second Polish Republic, SOVIET RUSSIA acted “on behalf of Soviet Belarus and Soviet Ukraine” which effectively ended the Ukrainian People’s Republic.

Please, can you see WHY UKRAINE doesn’t want Russian Federation “ACTIN ON BEHALF” of Ukraine & issuing Russian passports for UKRAINE CITIZENS???

In the independence referendum on 1 December 1991, the people of Ukraine fully supported the Act of their Declaration of Independence, with more than 90% voting in favor, and 82% of the electorate participating.
Since 1992, the 24th of August is celebrated in Ukraine as Independence Day.
