Director of the Consular Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Alexey Klimov said that issuing internal passports of the Russian Federation in Russian institutions abroad is difficult to implement. RIA Novosti reports this.
According to him, this issue was worked out in an interdepartmental format. Based on the results, it was stated that “this algorithm is logistically difficult to implement.”
Prior to this, the Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation, Tatyana Moskalkova, proposed opening an MFC abroad to issue Russian passports.
“It seems necessary to take measures to simplify the procedure for obtaining a passport of a citizen of the Russian Federation, providing the opportunity for compatriots to do this without leaving Russia,” the ombudsman said in a statement.
Moskalkova added that such measures are necessary due to the restrictions imposed against Russia after the start of a special military operation in Ukraine, as well as economic and logistical difficulties.
Previously, Chechnya stopped issuing foreign passports to “young people under 30 years old unaccompanied by parents.”
