Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that Russia may make a new fast-track naturalisation process available to all citizens of Ukraine. He made the remarks at a press conference during the Second Belt and Road Forum in Beijing on Saturday.

"We are thinking about extending the simplified procedure of obtaining our citizenship to Ukrainian citizens,” said the Russian president.

The announcement comes after residents of eastern Ukraine were permitted to apply for Russian passports using a three-month procedure.

Putin went on to voice his opposition to trade protectionism, saying "nobody wants any trade wars apart from those maybe who initiate those processes."

"The absolute majority are convinced that all those restrictions and trade wars are harming the world’s economy and its development," he added.
