Usually, the concept of "citizenship" is understood in a one-sided format: as certain benefits, benefits, advantages granted to a person on an irreversible basis. Therefore, the more passports a person has, the more opportunities he has.

However, the presence of citizenship implies compliance with many obligations - to protect the Motherland, pay taxes and generally obey the laws.

Therefore, if a person aspires to become a full-fledged member of another country and does not want to bear the duties of a citizen of Ukraine, he can think about terminating his citizenship. The same applies to foreign citizens wishing to obtain Ukrainian citizenship.
