Crimean Tatars to acquire Ukrainian citizenship

FORMERLY DEPORTED CRIMEAN TATARS TO ACQUIRE UKRAINIAN CITIZENSHIP
 
There are good grounds to fulfil by the year-end the task of granting
Ukrainian citizenship to 6,000 Crimean Tatars who have come from
Uzbekistan to the Crimea, said Vadym Petrov, first deputy head of the
Crimean committee for nationalities and deported persons.
 
The validity of the Ukrainian-Uzbek agreement on the simplification of
the process of renunciation of Uzbek citizenship and acquisition of
Ukrainian citizenship by formerly deported people of the Crimea was
extended until the end of this year. According to law-enforcement
agencies, to date 261,100 deported persons and their descendants have
been registered in the Crimea, including 258,000 Crimean Tartars and
about 3,000 Armenians, Bulgarians, Greeks and Germans.
