Zelensky terminates Ukrainian citizenship of 606 individuals associated with Russia's leadership

The National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine on Wednesday decided to apply restrictive measures to 606 individuals who belong to the leadership of the Russian Federation. President Volodymyr Zelensky announced in a video address.

“28 members of the Security Council of Russia, 154 members of the Federation Council of Russia, 424 deputies of the State Duma of Russia. They are all responsible for this war, for the terror against our people. And none of them will avoid responsibility - it's only a matter of time. We have already taken some of the necessary legal, diplomatic and political steps for this responsibility for them. We also take all other steps deliberately,” he said.

Also, according to him, the Security Service conducted an important operation regarding the activities of some persons subject to sanctions on the territory of our country.

“I have repeatedly emphasised: there will be no place for smugglers and criminal networks in Ukraine. The customs officials who helped the smugglers, including the leadership, have been removed from office and will receive a legal response for all their illegal actions,” the President said.

The Head of State also announced that based on the proposal of the Security Service of Ukraine and in accordance with the current legislation, he decided to terminate the Ukrainian citizenship of those persons subject to sanctions, whose foreign citizenship, in particular Russian and Romanian, was exposed.
