Russian oligarch renounces citizenship, says it has ‘become a stamp of shame’

In a lengthy Facebook post, Leonid Nevzlin said if he were to obtain a second citizenship, he would be honored to be part of Ukraine.

Russian citizenship has already become a stamp of shame on itself, which I no longer want to wear on myself,” he wrote. “I can’t afford to be a citizen of a country that kills children of other countries and tortures their children who don’t agree with it. I am against the war. I am against the occupation. I am against the genocide of the Ukrainian people.”
