US slams ‘provocative’ bill to simplify citizenship procedure for southeast Ukraine

The US Department of State said on Wednesday that Russia’s bill to simplify the citizenship procedure for residents of southeastern Ukraine was "highly provocative" and will hinder the implementation of the Minsk agreements.

"President Putin’s decision creates a serious obstacle to the implementation of the Minsk agreements and the reintegration of the Donbas region," the statement reads. "Russia, through this highly provocative action, is intensifying its assault on Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity."
