“This issue (dual citizenship) raises discussions. I personally believe that we should find a balanced solution. Let’s face it: the millions of the Ukrainians on different reasons went abroad but want to remain the citizens of Ukraine and helped Ukraine in the hardest times,” Kuleba said.
He added that particular criteria should be considered during the elaboration of such legislation.
“First of all, dual citizenship is impossible for public officials and the second – no citizenship with the country-aggressor. It can be extra criteria,” he added.
The State Migration Service (SMS) said that Ukraine was preparing to legalize dual citizenship in order to fill the country with people. The first step has already been done - Presidential Bill No. 2590 was submitted to the Verkhovna Rada for consideration.
