"The fact that the representatives of the so-called 'DPR' and 'LPR' in the TCG are actually Russian citizens was also communicated [to the German official] as clearly and transparently as possible," he said in a video address from Berlin posted on Facebook on June 2.

As was earlier reported, in the middle of May, Deputy Prime Minister for Reintegration of Temporarily Occupied Territories, one of Ukraine's envoys to the TCG for the Donbas settlement in Minsk Oleksiy Reznikov said that the Ukrainian side at a TCG meeting had informed the Russian delegation that Ukraine was aware that the so-called "invited" envoys from the "DPR" and the "LPR" are Russian citizens.
