Russia Passes Dual Citizenship Law, Hoping to Add 10M Citizens

April 17, 2020

Russian lawmakers from both houses of parliament have passed legislation Friday allowing dual Russian citizenship for foreigners, sending it to President Vladimir Putins desk less than two weeks after introducing it.

Lawmakers have described the amendments to Russias citizenship law, which among other steps strike down a requirement to renounce one's existing citizenship, as revolutionary. Their authors expect up to 10 million people, primarily from Russian-speaking populations in the former Soviet republics, to obtain Russian passports as the country tries to fix its demographic crisis.
