Posted on 06/14/2016 7:08:13 PM PDT by BlackAdderess
Tens of thousands of Russian dual nationals are being effectively stripped of their Russian citizenship via a quiet policy of Russian consulates worldwide refusing to renew their passports.
Under new regulations the consulates are enforcing, anyone seeking to renew a passport who was not registered as living in Russia on February 6, 1992, will be rejected, even if his or her passport had been renewed on previous occasions.
It is unclear just how many people this new policy will affect. But it will certainly apply to thousands of Jews who emigrated from Russia after July 1, 1991 the date on which the Soviet Union, then in its final days, ended its policy of taking away the passports of Jews who left the country with exit visas to Israel. (The Soviet Union was formally dissolved on December 25, 1991.)

What is so special there, besides the furs?
The lack of surrounding countries with populations who want you dead, perhaps?
In Russia, YOU will be assimilated.
Your answer makes NO sense. WHAT does that mean?
Give me a couple of examples, perhaps.
Russia is KING over there. NO ONE is even close to them in weaponry, missiles, bombs, etc. WHAT are you trying to say?
You asked me what the draw is toward Russia besides good fur. I said “The lack of surrounding countries with populations who want you dead”
Surely you are aware of Israel’s geographic position in the world?
They would get indigestion I’m afraid ;)
If you live in Israel nearly everyone country on your border and near borders wishes to see you annihilated. If you live in Russia the surrounding sates are at worse neutral to your existence. Plus Russia is much more friendly to Jews than the USSR.
I think you are right, the anti-globalism thing is growing stronger.
If all the distortions and lies about Trump continue, though, we might end up stuck with all these nitwits, the way things are going!
Eh. I’ve never been a big fan of dual citizenship. I think it is perfectly reasonable for a country to expect undivided loyalty from its citizens. Good for the Russkies.
Ah, now I get it.
Those countries around may want the Russians dead but they can't do anything about it. That is different.
Lots of Muslims countries near Russia. Why would the Muslims NOT want to kill the Christian Russians?
I also HATE olives. I TRIED to like them, for years, but never could develop a taste for them, not the black, green, stuffed or whatever.
Good! Dual citizenship is an oxymoron. You can only have true allegiance to one country.
Is it just me or does it seem like in the past ten years Russia has been the country with the most common sense?
Russia is a kleptocracy headed up by a former KGB intelligence officer. Don’t let the improved quality of the propaganda distract you from the fact that “sharing” with us is not actually high on their priority list!
They export good hockey players who remain Russian citizens.
Russia is the best place in America.
I know some Americans who emigrated to Israel who simply could not cut it and native Israelis who decided to leave. It’s a pressure cooker existence, and not only because of the constant threat of terror. Let’s face it, and I say this as someone who genuinely loves and respects the Jews, but they are an argumentative and “stiff necked” people. Put five million of them together in one place, including every little subset of Judaic religious practice, and you’re going to get both a spectacular flowering of genius and five million people prone to screaming in each others’ faces on the smallest provocation. It could make even some of the ones who escaped the USSR homesick for a cold autumn breeze and endless grasses on the steppes.
Whereas we are becoming crony capitalists (aka fascists).
We have also become destroyers of our own western civ, anti-christian, sexually degenerates, ashamed of our history, traditions and founding, globalists, delusional with regard to reality, etc.
Russia, at least, shows a semblance of sanity regarding the above list.
