Despite of that in Ukraine is officially forbidden double nationality, the world practice often differs from existing laws. To lose the Ukrainian nationality it is quite problematic.
For example, in the USA a reason for refusal of the Ukrainian nationality are revenues to service in armies. And in Russia now in general in the heat the program of return of Russians on the historical homeland.
