"Let's say clearly that when acquiring citizenship, they take an oath... it is clearly written that they undertake to comply with the law, love the motherland, and so on, and, accordingly, not to pose a threat to national security, a citizen who goes deliberately to such actions should be aware", - Kazakova said at a meeting of the State Duma Committee on CIS Affairs (quoted by RIA Novosti).

According to her, "the state has the right to grant citizenship of the Russian Federation and terminate it." A citizen retains the right to appeal against the deprivation of citizenship in court. According to Interfax, Kazakova said at the meeting that in the current "conditions, the amendment is simply necessary".

In addition, it provides for the deprivation of citizenship for public actions aimed at discrediting the use of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation under Article 280.3 of the Criminal Code, as well as crimes under Article 280.2 of the Criminal Code — Violation of the territorial integrity of the Russian Federation.

"Also, among others, an amendment was approved on the deprivation of citizenship for carrying out activities on the territory of the Russian Federation of a foreign or international non—governmental organization, in respect of which a decision was made to recognize its activities undesirable on the territory of the Russian Federation (Article 284.1 of the Criminal Code)", - Interfax reports.

The first reading of the bill in the State Duma took place on April 5. The document considered provided for the deprivation of citizenship for a number of terrorist crimes, crimes against the state, crimes related to trafficking in narcotic and psychotropic substances, as well as forgery of documents. The initiative was sponsored by a group of senators.

"This amendment was introduced by senators of the Russian Federation Yatskin, Klishas, Bondarev, Karasin, it concerns the termination of Russian citizenship due to the commission of a crime... Leave it in the table number one (for adoption)", - said Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on CIS Affairs Artem Turov (quoted by RIA Novosti).
