In 2019, about 500 thousand Ukrainians received Russian citizenship. This was told by the head of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia on migration, Valentina Kazakova.



“As for the citizens of Ukraine as a whole, (in 2019 - RT ), if we turn to the numbers, almost 500 thousand people have acquired Russian citizenship,” Tass quoted Kazakova as saying.

She noted that in 2018, 270 thousand Ukrainians received Russian citizenship.

At the same time, Kazakova added that "this is not only at the expense of Donetsk and Lugansk, although there are, of course, most of these."

In December 2019, Deputy Head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia Igor Zubov told how many people annually apply for Russian citizenship.

On December 9, the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs reported that since April 125,000 residents of the self-proclaimed DPR and LPR received Russian citizenship.
