 FIS to investigate if Novynskyi keeps Russian passport, - head of FIS Bozhok

Before appealing to the court intelligence has to be 200 percent sure that MP Novynskyi retains his Russian citizenship.

As reported by Censor.NET, head of FIS Yehor Bozhok told LB.ua that Ukraine Foreign Intelligence Service (FIS) investigates if Opposition Block party MP Novynskyi has kept his Russian passport.

"We are working on Novynskyi’s passport issue. But taking into account how influential this person is, we have to be 200 percent sure before we go to court," said Bozhok.

He also reminded about the flaws in Ukrainian legislation, which prohibits dual citizenship, but does not provide penalty for it.

As reported earlier, Vadym Novynskyi obtained Ukrainian citizenship in 2012, but in 2015 MP Tetiana Chornovol said that he had not withdrawn from Russian citizenship and kept his Russian passport.
