The foreign minister delivered the comment while speaking at a short briefing on the Odesa pier near the USS Donald Cook, according to an UNIAN correspondent.

“I consider it necessary to allow dual citizenship ... Yes, we need it. However, under no circumstances should there be dual citizenship with the aggressor state. This will be discussed only after they return Donbas and Crimea back to us,” said Klimkin.
