The Human Rights Committee of the Verkhovna Rada supported the draft law on multiple citizenship introduced by president Volodymyr Zelensky.

At the meeting on February 6, the committee supported the draft law on issues in the field of migration, which is defined as a priority.

The draft law is aimed at updating the provisions on the acquisition and loss of citizenship, as well as at improving the legal regulation of foreigners and stateless persons serving in the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Multiple citizenship, as a status in which a person is recognized as a citizen of two or more countries, is considered in connection with the draft law.

However, the Constitution of Ukraine emphasizes the principle of a single citizenship in the country. Last October, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed support for the idea of introducing multiple citizenship in Ukraine with the ban on dual citizenship with aggressor states such as Russia.
