Russian lawmakers are considering revoking the citizenship of certain individuals who are critical of the country’s invasion of Ukraine, according to state news agency RIA Novosti, which cited federal lawmaker Konstantin Zatulin.A set of amendments currently under consideration before a State Duma legislative panel would strip Russian citizenship in cases where an individual from another country gained Russian citizenship, and then violated the law. The amendments would expand the current list of laws to include the “discrediting” of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.The amendments would alter a draft law that was adopted in the first reading in April 2022, which stipulated that acquired citizenship could be revoked for crimes related to terrorism, grave crimes against the state, document forgery, or certain drug-related offenses.
