Petro Poroshenko has signed a decree, which is to simplify acquiring citizenship by foreigners who are willing to join the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

According to the document, in order to obtain Ukrainian citizenship, foreigners have to live in the country for three years after the contract of entry into military service comes into force.

On January 28, Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted a law on a simplified procedure of acquiring Ukrainian citizenship by foreigners and stateless citizens, who do military service in the Ukrainian army.
