On Monday, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree extending a simplified Russian naturalisation process to all Ukrainian nationals, according to a document published on the government’s website.

Previously, a streamlined procedure for obtaining Russian citizenship applied only to residents of the self-proclaimed breakaway territories of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) and Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR) in eastern Ukraine, which Russia seeks to “liberate” from Kyiv’s control, as well as the Russian-occupied regions of Kherson and Zaporizhzhia, according to the state news agency TASS.
