MOSCOW, March 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s citizens, who live in Crimea and give up Russian citizenship, should inform the Federal Migration Service (FMS) within a month, the service’s deputy chief, Sergei Kalyuzhnyi, said on Monday.

“Article 5 of the treaty (on Crimea’s accession to Russia) says citizens of Ukraine and stateless persons living in Crimea and Sevastopol are recognized as Russian citizens,” the official said.

“People wishing to preserve Ukraine’s citizenship or to be stateless should inform the Federal Migration Service. Thus, they should get residence permits to live where they want,” the FMS deputy chief said, adding: “There will be no big legal problems. People can live in Crimea as Ukrainian citizens, who permanently live in Russia.”
