Some people have been asking me for more information on Russian citizenship and green card (aka, permanent residency) application process. You may recall I wrote about this last year as Russia first announced the simplified Russian citizenship for those born in Russia or whose ancestors were born and lived on the territory of Russia: Russia Adopts Simplified New Citizenship Law.
The political and societal pressure has been tremendous to introduce simplified fast-track citizenship process for millions that are now awaiting their turn. A bottleneck of applicants has formed. Hundreds of thousands are applying from the West and millions more from Ukraine and post-Soviet space. This often happens to countries whose life force is on the rise, as is the case in Russia, per my predictions. Read: Mass Migration: What Happens if a Country Gains or Loses its Life Force?
Russian government is always extremely careful to give out citizenships to so many new people. I am with all those Russian politicians and personalities who urge the government to extend simplified citizenship requirements to more people, including all those who were born of the entire territory of the former USSR and/or Russian Empire. Presently, it only applies to those who can claim heritage on today’s territory and within the borders of the Russian Federation. This may exclude some people who are ethnically Russian, or definitely consider themselves Russian, regardless of ethnicity, but whose ancestors may have not lived on today’s territory of RF, but rather in Kiev/Malorossia, Novorossia, Lithuania or Belarus. Of course, the difficulty is that if citizenships are issued more freely to those who are from other parts of the post-Soviet space, there is a heightened risk of subversive element infiltration from Western Ukraine, Baltics and Central Asia. Therefore, extreme caution is justified.
Still, this is a big leap forward.
This breaking news is from RT. (Thanks to FT contributor Stanislav Sokolov/ Nemo for the link):
The Russian parliament is set to consider a new bill that would fast-track naturalization for people born in Russia or whose ancestors were born within the current borders of the Russian Federation.
The bill was prepared by several lawmakers from the majority party United Russia, including the head of the Lower House Committee for Eurasian Integration and Ties with Compatriots, Konstantin Zatulin, and former chief prosecutor of Crimea Natalia Poklonskaya.
In its current draft, the bill introduces changes to federal laws on citizenship and the legal status of foreign citizens, and allows people born in Russia and those who have ancestors born within the current borders to receive residence permits without having to provide documents proving they have given up their previous citizenship. The current law allows this only for those whose ancestors permanently lived within the current borders.
The sponsors of the bill said that it had been developed in accordance with a decree issued by President Vladimir Putin in late 2012. Back then, Putin ordered lawmakers to develop and pass laws that would enable citizenship to be granted faster to people of Russian heritage who want to renounce their current citizenship and move to Russia, including descendants of citizens of the Soviet Union and the Russian Empire.
In recent years, several bills have been in the works on simplifying the rules for granting citizenship to certain groups, in particular investors and people of Russian heritage – those who speak Russian, and have at least one ancestor who was a permanent resident of any area within the current borders of the Russian Federation.
In one of the latest proposals, MP Konstantin Zatulin (United Russia) proposed granting Russian citizenship to children with one Russian parent without the consent of their foreign parent, saying it would increase the legal protection of Russian citizens who live abroad.
Also, in late 2016, the legislature of St. Petersburg prepared a bill that would allow the government to issue residence permits as prizes in a free lottery for foreign citizens, much like the ‘green card lottery’ held annually by the US.
1EarthUnited It’s good that the Russian Government is rewarding loyalty and support by repatriation of former soviet citizens in a timely manner. As the world shifts toward nationalism (in a good way), why not attract the best ppl? Also, Russia implementing new policy: Quietly Strips Emigres of Dual Citizenship.

Lada Ray Very smart. Just lately, Russians finally started doing something to ensure loyalty and commitment, and they are right. As a left over from Yeltsin’s era, previously, the rules for holding Russian passport were too lax. Russia doesn’t want to sell their citizenship off to the highest bidder, as some other countries are doing. Another thing: this way you know who your real friend is. Many who hold dual and triple citizenships are oligarchs and the rich. With this class of people there are always shadow globalist interests involved. Also, this hits directly some of those who emigrated in the 1990s – 2000s to Israel, US and West in general, and who retain dual citizenship just in case. There are also some notorious and clear enemies of Russia, who reside permanently in the West and hold Russian citizenship to travel back freely, while being openly Russophobic, and possibly spies to boot. I’ve met such people.

I frequently get asked how to move to Russia and especially how to obtain Russian citizenship. As the Western World’s crisis intensifies, as the upcoming uncertainty becomes more obvious, this question is more and more on people’s mind.
Moving to Russia is not a problem if you have a skill or talent Russians value and if you can obtain gainful employment where employer would vouch for you; if you open a business, which provides jobs and pays taxes; if you have certain material assets.
As to the Russian citizenship, until recently, all I could say was that it was VERY hard to obtain. The requirements included residing in Russia for 6 years (1 year + 5 years with residency permit), holding a good job where an employer would vouch for you, plus passing the Russian language and history test. The most discouraging thing for millions of aspirants was that the old law applied to everyone equally, regardless of their circumstances. Of course there are always exceptions, such as a speedy citizenship for Gérard Depardieu, which I can certainly understand. 😉
After what happened in the late 1980s and 1990s, including a huge drainage of valuable talent and skill, when millions moved to the West where they were paid more (some have returned already), plus the fracturing of the Russian world, when the estimated 25 million Russians became stuck in often unfriendly regimes, a knee jerk reaction made Russia very reticent about accepting anyone back easily.
I’ve been expecting the new citizenship law for years. A few years ago I was in talks with the Russian embassy in the US, advising them that they really needed to do something about their tough citizenship laws. I told them that they would immediately get a lot of valuable specialists, should they finally liberalize the Russian citizenship requirements! Looks like my message got across to the right people.
The law isn’t as comprehensive and broad as many hoped, but it’s a giant leap forward. Many – yours truly included – thought Russians were way too slow in adopting the new citizenship law. However, there were legitimate reasons for this extreme caution.
And it’s better late than never! I anticipate that the surprise news with which the Russian government just came out will generate a stampede of those desirous to move to Russia and obtain Russian citizenship. I keep hearing from my international contacts that several hundred thousand Russian Germans residing in Germany are awaiting their permits to repatriate to Russia. The Russian Germans are German nationals whose ancestors used to lived in Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan.
I hear from various Russians residing in the US, usually scientists, techies, art and sports professionals, that they can’t wait for an opportunity to return to Russia. Don’t even get me started on how many millions want to leave Ukraine, Moldova, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, as well as various Eastern Europe countries!
This is mega-news, and while the newly adopted law isn’t as broad as was initially proposed and it doesn’t apply to all categories that are hoping for Russian citizenship, it opens the floodgates for millions to emigrate to Russia. The expected immediate impact is 2-3 million applicants.
Actually, at this point let me pause for a second and enjoy picturing George Soros squirming from the news. As you know, enjoying anyone, even that entity, suffering is not my style, but here I think it’s rather appropriate. After all, Soros – the pointman of the dark NWO agenda – throughout 1980s-2000s had made it his life’s mission to drain Russia of all resources, including the most valuable resource, her people, to feed then growing NWO machine.
The next step would have been the dismemberment and destruction of the World’s Great Balancer, Russia, followed by a wholesale re-writing of history to eliminate for the future generations the truth of Russia’s role and very existence. In the long bygone eras this had already happened more than once; the truth of our real origins and roots was deleted, while lies were inserted in our psyche. As it is, we presently live in the 90% falsified history, and only faint echos of truth still exist in our languages and lore, visible only to those who know where to look. For just a small hint of the truth read my piece Forbidden History: Are Scandinavians Slavs?
According to the master plan, the destruction of Russia would have been followed by the complete and final takeover of the world by what we came to call NWO: the New World Order.
As I predicted in ESR1: IS PUTIN PART OF NWO?, it is now turning into the ‘old world order.’
It appeared in the ’90s and throughout 2000s Soros and his cronies have almost succeeded. It was only after Vladimir Putin came to power that the trend began reversing in earnest. Helped by all those of us who saw where the wind was blowing, he thwarted their careful plans and this is the real reason Putin is so universally feared and hated by the Western elites. This is also the reason he is so universally loved and supported in Russia and all over the world.
The way the new simplified Russian citizenship law has been worded, it primarily targets those who reside in the West, especially US, Canada, UK, Germany, France and EU in general. Therefore, this is the law that targets valuable professionals, people with assets and Western know-how.
It also targets some people residing in the post-Soviet space, especially the Baltics (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania – all members of the EU and NATO) and to a smaller degree, Ukraine, Caucasus, Belarus and Central Asia..
I’ll soon have a detailed report about the new Russian citizenship law & how it works.
It’ll come out in a different format than my usual FT articles and ESRs.
Stay tuned for my big announcements in July and August!
