The Verkhovna Rada supported draft law No. 7606, according to which, in order to acquire the Ukrainian citizenship, it is necessary to pass exams on the Constitution, history and language.

MP Yaroslav Zhelezniak reported on Telegram that the draft law was supported by 281 MPs.

According to the new law, to obtain the Ukrainian citizenships, a person must pass exams on the Constitution of Ukraine, history of Ukraine and Ukrainian language.

The law also introduces amendments to some other norms.
