Ukraine has introduced dual citizenship but only for "Western lobbyists"

Summary of Disinformation

In Ukraine, dual citizenship has been introduced, but you can only have more than one passport if you sympathise with the West.


This is a manipulation of a quote by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine. Pavlo Klimkin has spoken many times in favour of the introduction of dual citizenship in the country and each time the Russian media has reacted to the statements of Klimkin with misleading disinformation.

Klimkin spoke in favour of the introduction of such a regime in Ukraine, arguing that in this way the country would acquire thousands of qualified specialists from many European and Western countries.
