On March 31, the State Duma received three versions of the bill stipulating penalties for the Russian citizens, who concealed obtaining a passport of a foreign country from the state.
The proposal to make amendmentsto the relevant article of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation came from the chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Legislation, Andrei Klishas. President Putin agreed with the initiative on the whole, but urged senators not to rush with the introduction of criminal responsibility for concealing dual citizenship.
As a result, the State Duma received three different law concerning dual citizenship.
The first victims of such a law will probably be jews who are Israeli and Russian citizens, and they will claim the law is anti-jew. And Western media will hammer that theme relentlessly.
The big question is why should state employees want to know.
What difference does it make, except for xenophobes?
In the real world, the only people who should disclose dual citizenship are the ones working for the government or defense industries where military technology or industrial or political secrets are involved in their work. If a guy works at a grocery store or gas station, what difference does it make if he holds 2 or more passports?
Once a person has "registered" his two passports, then what? Will a hit team then execute him?
Maybe they kill his dog? Does he go to a gulag? Will he have to wear a gold star on his coat?
No, this idea isn't fit for human consumption. It stinks.
