#AceNewsServices – UKRAINE (Kiev) – October 3 – Ihor Kolomoisky, the governor of Ukraine’s Dnipropetrovsk region, confessed on Friday he has passports of three countries.
In an interview on the Ukrainian television Channel One, Kolomoisky said that along with the Ukrainian passport he has passports of Israel and Cyprus. When asked how his holding three passports fitted Ukrainian laws, he said: “The constitution prohibits double citizenship but triple citizenship is not forbidden.”
