The authorities of Ukraine on a permanent basis issue citizenship of the country or deprive it, the termination of the citizenship of the head of the headquarters of the territorial defense of the Dnieper, Gennady Korban, has become part of a regular practice.

He called this information junk and expressed a desire to receive an official explanation from the migration service of Ukraine if he was deprived of citizenship on the basis of these publications.
The head of the Dnieper territorial defense headquarters also noted that the “verbal passage” Danilov cannot be turned in his direction, because “I am not a politician, I am not in the civil service and I do not sit in the Rada.” Korban pointed out that a large number of Ukrainians also have the citizenship of Canada, Poland, Israel and other countries, asking — Should they be considered traitors? He also promised to help identify many people who have second citizenship around Danilov himself.
“A leader of this rank is not obliged to make lengthy statements about anything, but to give clear explanations. Only in this case, we will avoid double standards and stop living according to the principle of «friends— all, enemies— law,” as it was established under [Viktor] Yanukovych,” Korban emphasized. He posted a statement on Facebook (owned by Meta, which is recognized as extremist and banned in Russia).
