How to take Russian citizenship

The general procedure for obtaining citizenship of the Russian Federation assumes that foreigners and stateless persons live in Russia for at least 5 years in a row on the basis of a residence permit (that is, they left the country for no more than 3 months a year), have a legitimate source of income in Russia and speak in Russian. In addition, those wishing to become citizens of Russia must renounce citizenship of other states that they have.
Only under these conditions, it is possible to obtain citizenship in a general manner.
For those who have the status of refugee or the one who is granted political asylum in Russia can obtain citizenship, having lived in our country for one year.
A simplified procedure exists for those who have at least one parent - a citizen of the Russian Federation who permanently lives in Russia. A clear list of those who still have the right to obtain Russian citizenship in a simplified manner is enshrined in Art. 14 of the Federal Law "On Citizenship of the Russian Federation."
An application for the acquisition of citizenship is submitted personally to the bodies of the Federal Migration Service of the Russian Federation if the applicant lives in Russia or to a diplomatic mission and consulate if the applicant lives in another country.
The application is filled out on a special form, which can be obtained from the body of the Federal Migration Service of the Russian Federation or on its official website. The form is filled in by hand or on a computer without abbreviations and corrections in two copies, in Russian.
The application is accompanied by documents confirming the existence of grounds for acquiring Russian citizenship, three photographs (3 x 4 centimeters in size), and a receipt for paying the state fee or consular fee. All applications must be translated into Russian, and the text of the translation is certified by a notary.
A child between the ages of 14 and 18 gives his written consent to change his citizenship.
The application form and the list of necessary documents are established by the Decree of the President of the Russian Federation No. 1325 of November 14, 2002.
The application for admission to the citizenship of the Russian Federation in a general manner is considered by the relevant authority up to one year, in a simplified procedure - up to six months from the date of submission.
The decision of the FMS of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation on the rejection of an application on issues of citizenship of the Russian Federation may be appealed in court. In case of refusal of admission to the citizenship of the Russian Federation, the state fee to the applicant will not be returned.
