Fake Rustem Umierov’s children are allegedly US citizens

The media are disseminating information that members of the family of Ukrainian Defense Minister Rustem Umierov are US citizens. This thesis is based on the fact that in his declaration Umierov noted the registration of his three children in the United States. This became known from the Unified State Register of Declarations. However, information about the American citizenship of the children of the Secretary of Defense is fake.

The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine explained that the minister’s children (a son aged 10 and daughters aged 8 and 2) are citizens only of Ukraine. Members of Umierov’s family do not have citizenship of other countries. In 2016, the family of the current Minister of Defense of Ukraine was forced to go abroad due to assassination attempts and threats as a result of the systematic activities of Rustem Umierov regarding the de-occupation of the temporarily occupied Crimea.

They received Ukrainian passports, issued to children after the expiration of the previous ones, at the Ukrainian Embassy in the United States. That is why in the declaration referred to by the media, the place of issue of documents was indicated in the United States.
