In the Kaluga region, migrants are required to conclude a contract with the Ministry of Defense, without which they are not accepted documents for obtaining citizenship.
This is mostly faced by men from Central Asian countries. But this order also affected at least one refugee from Ukraine, writes 7×7, citing human rights activist Tatyana Kotlyar.
According to the interlocutor of the publication, problems with filing documents in the Kaluga region began in April, although in March people “sent documents and received passports without any problems.” He also said that he had read about the delay in the issuance of finished documents.
Women are not affected by this problem. “There are a lot of people in the migration department who apply for citizenship, especially citizens of Tajikistan. And all men are sent to the military registration and enlistment office, and women are calmly accepted documents. Before that, I met with my friend in Kaluga. He submitted documents a week earlier, and he They didn’t accept him either, sending him to the military registration and enlistment office,” the source said.
Nikita Petrov from the Kharkiv region received temporary asylum in the Kaluga region and later applied for Russian citizenship. The Obninsk police asked him for a certificate from the military registration and enlistment office on the conclusion of an agreement with the Ministry of Defense for participation in the war. A month later, the man decided to apply for a residence permit instead of citizenship.
A citizen of Tajikistan, who cannot serve for health reasons, complained to the Ministry of Internal Affairs, after which he got into trouble – and he left Russia. “A protocol was drawn up against him for a violation that did not exist. He said: “We are not considered as people here, we are treated like cattle. I don’t want to be a citizen of that country. I took a ticket and I’m leaving home,” wrote Kotlyar.
