Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky here discussed defence aid and bilateral cooperation with visiting Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk, the Presidential press service reported.

After the meeting, Zelensky described the negotiations as “very productive”. “There is a new form of our cooperation, which is aimed at a larger scale of arms purchases for Ukrainian needs: the Polish loan for Ukraine,” Zelensky said on Monday.

He added that the prospects for future joint arms production were discussed at the talks, Xinhua news agency reported. They also discussed the situation on their joint border, energy sector cooperation and investment collaboration. Tusk arrived in Kiev earlier on Monday.

Ukraine Considers Legislation for Dual Citizenship

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has said that he is submitting to Parliament a draft law that would allow multiple citizenship in Ukraine, the Presidential press service reported.

The law will allow all ethnic Ukrainians and their descendants from around the world to have Ukrainian citizenship, except for citizens of Russia, Zelensky said on Monday in an address to the nation marking the ‘Day of Unity’.

If adopted, the new legislation would enable those who left Ukraine to emigrate to restore their Ukrainian citizenship, Xinhua news agency reported.

It would also pave the way for foreign volunteers, who are fighting on the Ukrainian side, during the war with Russia to obtain Ukrainian citizenship.

At present, the Ukrainian Constitution allows only single citizenship.
