A bill on multiple citizenship has been introduced in Ukraine

Ukraine, (bbabo.net). Ukrainian leader Vladimir Zelensky said in

Zelensky called the bill a “key” document that will make it possible to adopt comprehensive changes to legislation.

The bill will allow foreign volunteers who fight in the Armed Forces of Ukraine to obtain Ukrainian citizenship.

As Strana notes, a bill on dual citizenship was submitted to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine several years ago. It was even approved for consideration in the first reading, but then it was removed from the agenda by the decision of all factions, calling some provisions of the document controversial and requiring improvement. Yulia Tymoshenko then warned that the adoption of this document “will end in the disintegration of the territory of Ukraine.”

In mid-December 2023, Vladimir Zelensky stated that Ukraine would consider the possibility of introducing multiple citizenship for refugees who are now living abroad. Before this, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba said that the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry supports the introduction of multiple citizenship in the country, except for Russian.
