Regarding the cancellation of exams for citizens of Ukraine and Belarus
According to the law approved by the Council of the Federation of the Russian Federation, citizens of Ukraine and Belarus who are fluent in Russian will be recognized as native speakers without an interview by the relevant profile commission, subject to the existence of special grounds.
Such a basis for this kind of simplification will be for those who currently have permanent residence or who have had it earlier on the territory of the Russian Federation, or in the territory belonging to the Russian Empire or the USSR, within the state border of the Russian Federation by the applicant or his/her direct relatives.
It is important to note that the status of native speaker of the Russian language gives that person the opportunity to obtain Russian citizenship in accordance with a simplified procedure.
