The President Volodymyr Zelenskyi is submitting to the Verkhovna Rada a draft law that will allow the introduction of multiple citizenship in Ukraine. It is symbolic that this document was proposed on the Day of Unity, as it will help unite Ukrainians around the world.

This was stated by Oleksandr Merezhko, the MP, Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Foreign Policy and Interparliamentary Cooperation.

He emphasized that multiple citizenship is a practice of developed countries, and many EU countries, the United States and the United Kingdom have this rule.

“Ukraine is heading for full membership in the EU, so the introduction of multiple citizenship is important. At the same time, the relevant rule should be implemented in such a way as to ensure the constitutional principle of equality of all citizens,” the MP said.

As a reminder, multiple citizenship is a legal status that allows a person to simultaneously be a citizen of several states. The grounds for acquiring citizenship may vary: the fact of birth in a particular country, national or ethnic origin, marriage, etc. Currently, multiple citizenship is legal in more than 60 countries.
