The Deputy of the state Duma of the Russian Federation Andrey Kozenko has drafted a bill to repeal the labor patents in Russia for the residents of Donetsk and Lugansk national republics.
“Last week I submitted to the expert Council of the faction “United Russia” in the State Duma a bill to abolish the necessity to obtain work patents for the citizens of the DPR and LPR on the territory of the Russian Federation,” said Kozenko at the founding meeting of the integration Committee “Russia — Donbass”, which takes place in the Livadia Palace in Yalta.
In his opinion, this will be another step in the process of integration of Russia and the Donbass.
As the press service of the MP, Kozenko believes that the abolition of work patents not only interested in the self-proclaimed Republic, but also hundreds of Crimean enterprises. Thus the Deputy notes that the Crimea has become an urgent problem of labor shortage in the summer.
“In my opinion, completely unfair that the Luhansk and Donetsk is the same order of admission to work in Russia, as well as to Lviv or Kiev. I hope fellow lawmakers at the State Duma will support the abolition of labour patents for the residents of the national republics”, — said the Deputy.
