Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky has ordered the government to draw up a bill on simplifying the procedures to obtain Ukrainian citizenship for Russians, who are "prosecuted on political motives."
Axar.az reports citing Tass that the decree was published on the Ukrainian president’s website on Monday. "I ask to draft a Ukrainian law on short notice aimed at easing the procedure of obtaining Ukrainian citizenship for Russian nationals, who have been subjected to prosecution for their political views," the document says.
Under the decree, the simplified procedures will be also applied to foreigners and persons without citizenship, who "took part in implementing the measures on ensuring national security and defense of Ukraine."
