President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy is submitting to the Verkhovna Rada a bill on the introduction of multiple citizenship for Ukrainians abroad. The Head of State said this during his address to the Verkhovna Rada on the internal and external situation in Ukraine.
"An important component of our international policy is to support Ukrainians in the world. I know how important the issue of multiple citizenship is for Ukrainians living in the United States, Canada and the EU. Today I am submitting the relevant bill to the Parliament. There are 65 million of us,” the President said.
According to the Head of State, for the first time Ukrainians all over the world "will feel not like a diaspora or just people of "Ukrainian origin", but like people of Ukrainian citizenship."
"Equal Ukrainians. And this is also part of independence, when people with equal rights drive on smooth roads," Volodymyr Zelenskyy stressed.
