President Vladimir Putin of the Russian Federation presented an amendment to the draft law on the possibility of revoking acquired citizenship, which was approved at first reading.
This was reported by Meduza on his Telegram channel, according to Ukrinform.
The standard will apply to those who received a passport not by right of birth, but as a result of “joining” new territories.
It is worth noting that Putin supplemented the list of crimes for which citizenship can be revoked. The list includes:
- Spread fake news about the Soviet Union and discredit the Russian military.
- Insult to the flag and coat of arms of Russia.
- Participate in an undesirable organization.
- Incitement to separatism.
- Encroachment on the life of a statesman and appeal to extremism.
The very decision to strip someone of Russian citizenship can be made regardless of when the crime was committed.
As reported by Ukrinform, the Center for Combating Disinformation of the National Security and Defense Council said that Russian propaganda and some foreign media are spreading false information about the NATO split on the issue of their position on the war in Ukraine.
