Russia Makes It Super Easy for Ukrainians (and Some Others) to Get Russian Citizenship

Can apply almost as soon as they're over the border without needing to give up the Ukrainian one

As of April 24, 2020, you no longer have to give up your foreign citizenship to get a Russian one.

Other categories:

  • Stateless persons in the former USSR no longer have to reside in Russia for three years. (Obvious application: Russians in the Baltic states).
  • Spouses of Russian citizens living in Russia and who have children with them.
  • Foreigners, at least one of whose parents have Russian citizenship and live in Russia.
  • Citizens of Moldova, Ukraine, Belorussia, and Kazakhstan who have a residency permit in Russia can apply for citizenship without any need to live in Russia for a set period of years.

All in all, this is excellent news that is the culmination of proposals first made in 2018 that will help consolidate the Russian World and make the lives of high human capital expats easier. Meanwhile, the waiving of residency requirements (and Russian language knowledge) only for those four countries in particular is as good refutation as any that these reforms are a covert means to launch “population replacement” on the West European model.

Ukraine should just pack it in and join Russia – on a world map as well as politically and economically!

Russia needs to replicate the former USSR’s model of promoting Russian culture and language by films and language courses in friendly countries. Soft power is immensely important.

Well done. I wish they had done it sooner and less would have been killed by the Israelis — I mean the Ukrainian government.
