US embassy in Kyiv warns men with dual citizenship will no longer be able to leave the country – Executive Digest

The U.S. Embassy in Kyiv issued a statement on Tuesday saying dual citizens and men between the ages of 18 and 60 living abroad can no longer leave Ukraine. The move came into effect from June 1.

According to the embassy, ​​Ukrainian law does not recognize dual citizenship. “Therefore, Ukrainian-American citizens with dual citizenship are considered only Ukrainian citizens while in Ukraine and are subject to the rights and obligations of Ukrainian citizens,” the official note reads.

Under the current martial law in Ukraine, all men between the ages of 18 and 60 are not allowed to leave the country. This rule is now extended to dual citizens who were previously able to leave Ukraine, provided they have registered their residence in the country and registered as residents of the United States.

“Previously, Ukrainian-American citizens could enter and leave Ukraine if they canceled their residence registration in Ukraine and registered their residence in the United States. According to our information, this exception has been canceled as of June 1,” the report added.

This new regulation has significant implications for dual-citizen citizens, especially those planning trips or changes of residence. The US Embassy in Kyiv is monitoring the situation and is advising affected citizens to seek further information and assistance.
