The Minister has called for a public debate on the prospects of dual citizenship in Ukraine. “However, we can’t even talk about dual citizenship with Russia during a de facto war with her. Those who have Russian passports, let them pass, all the rest — let’s talk” — said Klimkin.
He also outlined the condition of dual citizenship. “It can’t have military commanders, it makes it impossible to hold certain positions,” explained the head of the Ukrainian foreign Ministry.
The Minister added that dual citizenship is practiced in some European countries. “And we have carriers violate the law, although this does not mean that they are criminals. In ATO killed at least 11 citizens of Hungary (Transcarpathia residents with dual citizenship — approx. “European truth”)”, — said Mr. Klimkin.
The issue of Ukrainians have passports of several countries emerged after the incident in the Consulate of Hungary in Transcarpathia. In September there was a video in which the Hungarian Consul distributed in the building of the diplomatic mission Ukrainians passports and led them to the oath of allegiance to Hungary.
