Foreign minister of Ukraine Leonid Kozhara opposes legalization of dual citizenship in Ukraine.

"There is no bill (on the legalization of dual citizenship in Ukraine - Ed.), but Ukraine should not encourage dual and multiple citizenship. This creates problems for the state and for the citizens," Kozhara told a briefing in the Cabinet, when asked about the prospect of legalizing dual citizenship in Ukraine, ForUm correspondent reports.

According to him, the current law meets all international standards.

"The effective law of Ukraine on citizenship 100% meets the requirements of the Council of Europe Conventions and international law. Citizenship law is based on the principle of non-recognition of dual citizenship. There is a specific rule: Ukraine does not prohibit dual citizenship, but it does not recognize it. Many Ukrainian politicians say there is a ban. Ukraine has used the European principle of non-recognition of dual citizenship," he said.
