MOSCOW, December 4. /TASS/. Members of the People’s Assembly (parliament) of Russia’s North Caucasus Republic of Dagestan have submitted to the State Duma on Friday a draft law, which provides for revoking Russian citizenship from persons involved in terrorist activities abroad. The aim of the document is to ensure the country’s national security, its authors say.
The initiative envisages the revocation of Russian citizenship from persons who "have left Russia to take part in terrorist activities."
Besides, it proposes to revoke one’s citizenship, if a person "takes or took part in actions directed against the Russian peacekeeping forces and hampering the fulfillment of their peacekeeping functions or directed against the Russian Armed Forces during international, interethnic, inter-territorial or other armed conflicts." Another ground for revoking citizenship is "participation in terrorist attacks, extremist activities or in preparations for such attacks, in carrying out such activities outside Russia" against Russians, Russian diplomatic missions abroad and their employees.
