In the state Duma again introduced a bill to revoke citizenship from terrorists

In the state Duma re-introduced a bill that allows you to cancel a decision on granting Russian citizenship for terrorist activities. The edited document was registered in the Duma electronic database on Friday, April 21.

The document in addition to the authors of the first version of it was signed by the speaker of the lower house of Parliament, Vyacheslav Volodin, his deputies, Ivan Melnikov and Irina Yarovaya, the head of the Duma Committee on state construction and legislation Pavel Krasheninnikov.

“The adoption of the Federal law will effectively implement the principle of incompatibility between the acquisition of the status of the citizen of Russia with terrorist and extremist activities”, — stated in the explanatory Memorandum.

The previous version of the draft law was submitted to the Duma faction leaders on April 18, but two days later the document was withdrawn for revision. Criticism, in particular, caused a paragraph of the bill relating to the possibility of Stripping a person of nationality. Edited the document suggests the abolition of the decision on the granting of citizenship to migrants, not the deprivation of nationality by right of birth.

“Even the term “deprived”, there is “cancel”, only citizenship. Only those who purchased it either with false documents or providing false information,” — said Pavel Krasheninnikov, in comments to RIA Novosti.

The possible cancellation of decisions on grant of citizenship to persons involved in terrorism, in April, said the President of Russia Vladimir Putin. The press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov has explained that such decision may be taken only after litigation.
