Does the Kyiv city chief prosecutor’s wife has or had the russian passport?

Does the Kyiv city chief prosecutor's wife has or had the russian passport?

The chief prosecutor of Kyiv who is tied with Andrii Yermak [the Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine] has a wife with a russian passport. Or had? Or passport is no longer is russian? And WHY does it matter? This hot scandal in Ukraine's media space had started yesterday. "Ukraine Front Lines" is on the side of journalists in this situation, and pay attention with our [UFL] comments to explain this position.

Journalists Natalie Sedletska and Mykhailo Tkach, Ukrainian journalists of profound trusted project "Schemy" of the Radio Liberty published such breaking news:

"This is Oleg Kiper, the chief prosecutor of Kyiv.

Oleg Kiper went on a ten-day vacation abroad for the New Year and Christmas holidays.

He left on December 29, 2022 via Poland and returned on January 8, 2023.

In his comment to "Schemy", the 42-year-old head of the Kyiv Prosecutor's Office confirmed that he went abroad precisely on vacation, explaining it by "family circumstances."

Heorhiy Shabaev and I asked him three times, but Kiper refused to name the country in which he spent his New Year's vacation. [UFL: DOES A UKRAINIAN OFFICIAL HAVE THE RIGHT TO HIDE FROM JOURNALISTS THE NAME OF THE COUNTRY WHICH HE WAS VISITING FOR "PRIVATE PURPOSES" DURING THE WAR?]

He attributed this to security concerns, as he says that "in July 2022, my wife changed her Russian citizenship to Ukrainian in connection with the events related to the war of the Russian Federation against Ukraine." [UFL: HERE WE WOULD LIKE TO ATTENTION THAT FOLLOWING THE WORDS OF KIPPER - THE WIFE OF THE TOP UKRAINIAN OFFICIAL KEPT RUSSIAN CITIZENSHIP UNTIL JULY 2022! THE FULL-SCALE RUSSIAN INVASION HAS ALREADY LAST 5 MONTHS.]

We found that the Russian passport of his wife Irina Kiper has not yet been canceled. The Russian authorities consider the Russian passport of the wife of the chief prosecutor of Kyiv, Irina Kiper, as valid.

When asked about this, Chief Prosecutor Kiper only replied that "these issues were dealt with by the Migration Service of Ukraine" and advised to contact them for clarification.

When asked how exactly the Migration Service of Ukraine can help citizens of the russian Federation to cancel the Russian citizenship, the head of the Kyiv Prosecutor's Office only noted that "these are issues that, among other things, fall within their competence."

In fact, the Migration Service of Ukraine takes care of issues related to the Ukrainian citizenship, but it cannot help with canceling the citizenship of the aggressor country.

Therefore, we will wait for more explanations from Mr. Kiper, why he lied about the complete cancellation of Russian citizenship of his wife, and why, in his opinion, the State Migration Service of Ukraine should reply to this private question.

[UFL: A DAY AFTER THE ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN THE MEDIA, INFORMATION APPEARED THAT TOP OFFICIAL'S WIFE'S RUSSIAN PASSPORT HAS BEEN REALLY TERMINATED AND THEN HATE CAMPAIGN AGAINST JOURNALISTS BEGAN].

It worth mentioned that earlier in January, Prosecutor General Andriy Kostin fired his deputy Oleksiy Symonenko after the publication about his New Year's holiday abroad in "Ukrainian Pravda", and President Zelenskyy implemented the decision of the NSDC to prohibit all officials from traveling abroad on private matters during martial law.

In addition, UFL managed to find out some other interesting details about Mr. Kiper.

In particular,

During the full-scale invasion, Kiper traveled abroad twice for private purposes. In addition to the New Year's vacation, he went on vacation to Vienna in August 2022, allegedly for treatment.

On September 11, 2020, Oleg Kiper was appointed to the position of head of the Kyiv City Prosecutor's Office. Before this appointment, Kiper was a freelance adviser to the head of the OPU, Andrii Yermak. Kiper started working in the prosecutor's office in 2001.

In 2014, Kiper came under lustration.

UFL: PLEASE NOTE THAT DESPITE refutation of information about KIPPER'S WIFE'S PASSPORT, and that she is allegedly not a citizen of Russia today; JOURNALISTS should be thanked for the following:

1: FAMILY MEMBERS OF UKRAINE'S TOP OFFICIALS CANNOT HAVE RUSSIAN CITIZENSHIP WHILE UKRAINE IS AT WAR WITH RUSSIA; THEY CANNOT KEEP THEIR RUSSIAN PASSPORTS FOR 5 MONTHS; 10 MONTHS; DAY OR WHATEVER; THE SECURITY SERVICE OF UKRAINE MUST INVESTIGATE HOW THIS COULD HAVE HAPPENED?

2: SENIOR OFFICIALS OF UKRAINE, DUE TO THE RECENT DECREE OF THE PRESIDENT OF UKRAINE, VOLODYMYR ZELENSKY, SHOULD BE FIRED IF THEY LEAVE THE TERRITORY OF UKRAINE, EXCEPT OF THE NATIONAL SECURITY OF UKRAINE'S ORDER; DOES MR KEEPER HAD SUCH AN ORDER?

3: HIGHER OFFICIALS THAT WERE LUSTRATED IN 2014 CAN NEVER GET STATE-IMPORTANT AND STATE OFFICIALS POSITIONS, ESPECIALLY NOW WHEN UKRAINE IS AT WAR WITH RUSSIA!

Outcome from this story in fact is sad.

The community starts hate campaign against journalists for disinformation that "russian passport is still valid".

IN FACT, PUBLIC SHOULD BE GRATEFUL TO SUCH COURAGEOUS PEOPLE WHO MAKE PUBLIC INFORMATION ABOUT HIGH OFFICIALS WHO HIDE FACTS FROM THEIR LIVES WHICH BEAR A THREAT TO THE SECURITY OF UKRAINE.
