Kyiv condemns Russia’s fast-track citizenship for Ukrainians

KYIV, Ukraine — Ukraine condemns a decree from Putin that simplifies the Russian citizenship procedure for all Ukrainians, more than four months after Russia’s invasion.

“The mentioned decree is another encroachment on the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, incompatible with the norms and principles of international law,” the foreign ministry says.

“Ukrainians do not need Putin’s citizenship and attempts to impose it by force are doomed to failure,” Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba says.

Kuleba called today’s decree “worthless” and proof of “Putin’s aggressive appetites.”
