        The thing is that Tatyana was born in Uzbekistan and initially received a passport in this country. In the city of Nukus, her son Roman was born. A birth certificate of an Uzbek sample was issued for the boy, and he was entered on his mother’s passport. Soon Tatyana moved to live in Ukraine and received Ukrainian citizenship. Here she had two daughters – Jasmine and Alsou. However, in Ukraine, the family did not stay long: in the Lviv region, where the Golubovskys lived, there were no Russian schools, so Tatyana came to Russia with her children and common-law husband.

        At first, the family lived in the Moscow region, in the village of Fedyukovo, but soon Tatyana with her children was forced to move to the Kostroma region. Golubovskaya’s husband began to drink and beat her. When he raised his hand to Roman, Tatyana wrote a statement to the man to the police, and he was deported. After that, the woman was taken into custody by volunteers to help families in difficult situations. She was helped to get into one of the houses of mercy in the Kostroma region, and her mother with many children began to collect documents for registration of permits.

        With the support of volunteers, Tatyana was able to get an official job, rent an apartment and get a temporary residence permit (RVP). However, the situation with Roman could not be resolved.

        The young man was already 11 years, he did not have a passport , he was not allowed out of Russia. It was required to present certificates that Roman did not receive an Uzbek passport and did not have Ukrainian citizenship. At the same time, neither Uzbekistan nor Ukraine recognized him as their citizen.

        Tatyana managed to get a certificate from the embassy of Uzbekistan, they didn’t give out a document from Ukraine at the embassy – they needed a personal appearance, but without documents Roman was not allowed to leave the country. The situation was aggravated by the fact that the young man graduated from the 9th grade and had to pass exams. Without a passport, they could not have been allowed to OGE, however, the school leadership went towards the family and allowed them to pass certification. Finding herself in a closed bureaucratic circle, Tatyana turned to the project “Not one on one.”

        After a request from RT, the Main Directorate for Migration of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation sent recommendations to the Kostroma unit at the place of registration of Tatyana. Specialists of the department invited her to a reception, accepted documents for obtaining a residence permit, and Roman had an application for RVP. After the documents were issued, Tatyana and her son were able to obtain Russian citizenship.
