The Verkhovna Rada decided that the forced acquisition of Russian citizenship in the temporarily occupied territories is not recognized by Ukraine and is not a basis for losing Ukrainian citizenship.

As an UNIAN correspondent reports, this is provided for by the law “On Amendments to Certain Laws of Ukraine Regarding the Regulation of the Legal Regime in the Temporarily Occupied Territory of Ukraine” (registration number 7270), for which 300 people’s deputies voted today.

The law determines that the date of the beginning of the temporary occupation of certain territories of Ukraine is February 19, 2014 and the illegality of such occupation.

The law states that the forced automatic acquisition by citizens of Ukraine who live in the temporarily occupied territory of the citizenship of the Russian Federation is not recognized by Ukraine and is not a basis for the loss of citizenship of Ukraine.

The law also defines the procedure for entering and leaving the temporarily occupied territory. We are talking about the right for citizens of Ukraine to freely enter the controlled territory of Ukraine through the checkpoints, as well as through the demarcation line – through humanitarian corridors or by any available means. If hostilities continue in the temporarily occupied territories, entry there is restricted until the end of the fighting.

The law defines a list of property that is allowed to be imported from the occupied territories, in particular during the evacuation – personal belongings, furniture, household appliances.
