The project proposes to grant the right to these citizens to acquire Russian citizenship in a simplified manner "if there is registration at the place of residence or state registered at the place of stay" in Russia.
That is, it is noted in the draft law, as if they have "a temporary residence permit or residence permit, and in the absence of such documents."
The column on the justification of the need to prepare such a draft law indicates the order of the Prime Minister.
Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, during the Dialogue program, previously stated that authorities are preparing a bill that will allow foreign graduates from Russian universities to obtain Russian citizenship in a simplified mode.
“I think it is in the public interest,” the head of government quotes TASS.
In early August, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law that simplifies the issuance of temporary residence permits in Russia for certain categories of foreign citizens.
In July 2017, the youth parliament under the State Duma proposed simplifying the process of obtaining citizenship by foreign students of Russian universities.
The initiative implied that the winners of international and national olympiads, as well as those who had distinguished themselves in scientific activities, could count on a simplified procedure for obtaining citizenship.
At the same time, they must study at universities with state accreditation for more than three years.
