Several citizenships in Russia: to keep in mind

According to the Constitution, citizens of the Russian Federation may have two or more citizenships.

At the same time, one should use only Russian documents on the territory of Russia, e.g. when entering / leaving the country, when applying to the state bodies or for a job.

Russians permanently residing in the RF are obliged to notify the FMS on the receipt of a second citizenship within 60 days. Otherwise, they could be imposed a penalty of up to 200,000 rubles.
