Ukraine's foreign minister against introduction of dual citizenship

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Leonid Kozhara has said he opposes the introduction of dual citizenship in Ukraine.

"I believe that Ukraine should not encourage dual citizenship," he said at a press conference in Kyiv on Wednesday.

He said Ukraine's current law on citizenship fully meets the requirements of the Council of Europe and international law.

"The law on citizenship is based on the principle of the non-recognition of dual citizenship. Ukraine does not prohibit dual citizenship, but it does not recognize it," the minister said.

As reported, an independent MP and leader of the Soyuz Party, Lev Myrymsky, has submitted a bill on dual citizenship to the Ukrainian parliament.
