MOSCOW, March 19 (Itar-Tass) — Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the procedure for getting Russian citizenship by children of compatriots living abroad was being studied.
Speaking at a meeting with representatives of the World Coordinating Council of Russian Compatriots on Monday, Lavrov said, “Now we’re studying an issue to make amendments to the Law on Russian Citizenship. The amendments will abolish provisions that require a foreign parent's consent for the acquisition of Russian citizenship by his child if the family lives abroad.”
“At present, we continue coordinating the draft law in Russian agencies,” the minister added.
He noted Russian compatriots’ active participation in the country’s internal life, especially in the elections. “Over 301,000 people took part in the State Duma elections and 440,000 people participated in the presidential elections. This was the record in Russian history,” Lavrov stressed.
