According to Kazakova, the residents of Crimea, who have renounced the citizenship of Ukraine, must also notify the Federal Migration Service. "Minimum documents required. No notarized copies needed. A simple copy of the ID confirming the citizenship of another country will be enough," she said.
According to Kazakova, the residents of Crimea will have 60 days from January 1, 2016 to undergo this procedure. It will be possible to submit the information to the Federal Migration Service via mail or personally. At the same time, the "head of the directorate" has specified that the residents of Crimea will face administrative liability according to the Russian law in case they fail to notify the Federal Migration Service of a second citizenship.
