The Minister of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin willing to consider the possibility of introducing criminal liability for dual citizenship with Russia. He declared it on air of TV channel “UA: Harkiv”.

19 Sep there was a video in which residents of the city Beregovo Transcarpathian region get a Hungarian passport and bring oath of allegiance to Hungary. The Consulate staff advise them not to say anything to the Ukrainian authorities. Later the media wrote that the inhabitants were given a package of documents necessary for obtaining the Hungarian citizenship. Ukraine were strongly against this practice, since its Constitution allows only one citizenship. In Budapest said that dual citizenship is a daily practice in the European Union, and Ukraine is not serious about European integration and NATO membership.

October 4, Kiev declared the Hungarian Consul in Berehove persona non grata. In response, Hungary has decided to expel the Ukrainian Consul.
