The Ukrainian foreign Ministry is developing a bill on granting dual citizenship. On Tuesday, 15 October, announced Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic integration Dmitry Kuleba, reports RBC-Ukraine.
“We in the government there are several approaches to how should be implemented the idea of dual citizenship, my colleagues from the foreign Ministry to bring all this to the holistic concept, but for me the important thing now is that everything is ripe to work on this issue. We started with the fact that this issue was seen as something quite cosmic and unrealized. And now we are discussing a specific bill,” – said Kuleba.
He also noted that the legal status of foreign Ukrainians are not filled with a sufficient contents, and the initiative will allow millions of people to keep the relationship with Ukraine. “It so happened that millions of people went. And we need to keep their connection with Ukraine. And the passport and citizenship is one of such connecting links. I am glad that there is evolution in this matter. And I hope that it will be supported by society because the ban on dual citizenship was created in the same context, now the context is completely different,” – said the diplomat.
During the press-marathon, President Vladimir Zelensky said that ethnic Ukrainians are planning to provide partial citizenship.
We will remind that in the beginning the reptile’s foreign Minister insisted that Ukraine have dual citizenship, but not with Russia.
At the end of last year, the SBU was going to put the Ukrainian double citizenship.
