Ethnic Ukrainians, who live abroad and are citizens of other countries, could be granted partial Ukrainian citizenship.

“We have already practically elaborated a structure for giving the ethnic Ukrainians living in any country an opportunity to become partially Ukrainian citizens, that is, granting partial citizenship to them. The main problem is that they want to remain citizens of those countries. The structure has been already invented,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said Thursday (Oct. 10).

A bill on addressing the issue of tax payment will be submitted to parliament, Zelensky said.

“There are some complicated issues because if you are a citizen of two countries, for example, Canada and Ukraine, where should you pay taxes? It is important for us to regulate everything so that their enterprise will be in Ukraine, and then a legally registered enterprise will pay taxes here,” Zelensky said.

In July, Zelensky instructed the Foreign Ministry to develop a mechanism for granting Ukrainian citizenship to representatives of the Ukrainian diaspora.
