Klimkin stated that he is categorically against dual citizenship in general. But special attention should be paid to those who, in addition to the Ukrainian, have a Russian passport. In his opinion, a special law should be created that would regulate this norm.
All cases of such obtaining Russian citizenship should be investigated accordingly by our special services.
- said the Ukrainian official.
In addition, he sharply condemned those compatriots who travel to Russia to earn money. (I just missed one point - not all Ukrainians have a ministerial position and a corresponding salary, and for many such trips are a matter of survival).
Indeed, according to the current Ukrainian Constitution, dual citizenship with any country is prohibited. But no punishment is provided for this. The question of introducing any punitive measures for dual citizenship initially arose as a result of the fact that the Ukrainian authorities were seriously concerned about the situation in Transcarpathia. It became known that the Hungarian consulate issues passports to ethnic Hungarians living in this region. This situation caused a conflict between Kiev and Budapest.
But now Klimkin is in a hurry to “turn the arrows”, first of all, to Russia. The desire to make another anti-Russian attack was more important for him than concern over the situation in Transcarpathia. Still would! Now the representative of the Ukrainian authorities cannot help but try to hurt the “aggressor country”, even if a significant part of the citizens of Ukraine goes to this country to earn a living.
