In connection with the Ukrainian Government's intention to introduce the system of personal passes in the occupied territory of the Donetsk People`s Republic, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Donetsk People`s Republic considers it necessarily to stress the following:

1. We believe that such actions are flagrant violations of the fundamental rights and freedoms of human and citizen, and all conventional international norms and conventions.

2. The additional restrictions on freedom of movement for Donbass civilians cause aggravation of catastrophic humanitarian situation, in which our people found themselves.

3. We draw a special attention to the impermissibility of such actions and to the fact that the Government of Ukraine will be responsible for the all serious consequences.
