Citizenship revoked from 4 pro-Russian politicians
Meanwhile, in the past few hours, Zelensky revoked the Ukrainian citizenship of the pro-Russian politician and oligarch Viktor Medvedchuk and three other opposition politicians, due to their support and their ties with Russia. The oligarch himself, in the last 20 years considered the Kremlin’s main agent of influence in Ukrainian politics, especially in Donbass, was exchanged on 22 September for Ukrainian prisoners after being arrested on 12 April by the Ukrainian security forces. “Based on the materials prepared by the Security Service of Ukraine and the State Migration Service of Ukraine, and in accordance with the Constitution of our State, I have decided to cancel the citizenship of four persons: Andriy Leonidovych Derkach, Taras Romanovych Kozak , Renat Raveliyovych Kuzmin and Viktor Volodymyrovych Medvedchuk,” Zelensky explained.
