Vadym Chernysh, Minister of Affairs of Temporarily Occupied Territories and Internally Displaced Persons, believes that the people, who have been forced to take Russian citizenship, cannot be called traitors, he said in his interview with "Voice of Ukraine."
“We are aware that many people in Crimea in order to survive, have to obtain a Russian passport. Some people are urging us to recognize them as traitors. In order to survive and receive pension, which we cannot pay, because there are no Ukrainian authorities on that territory, a person applies for a Russian passport…" Vadym Chernysh says.
The Minister went on to say that the occupants want as many as possible Crimean Tatars to leave the peninsula. This cannot be allowed.
“The life of people, who want to stay with Ukraine, cannot be jeopardized. The occupants just strive to make all 300 thousand Crimean Tatars leave Crimea… And in order to live, these people need to take the children to Russian schools and hospitals,” Chernysh explains.
It was reported earlier that the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine has appointed a new composition of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine on April 14.
Vadym Chernysh was appointed the Minister of Affairs of Temporarily Occupied Territories and Internally Displaced Persons.
A month later, Crimean Tatar Yusuf Kurkchi was appointed the First Deputy Minister of Affairs of Temporarily Occupied Territories and Internally Displaced Persons.
