UN: There are 35,000 people in Ukraine without citizenship

In Ukraine, as of 2017, there are 35,000 people without citizenship, as stated in a report by the United Nations Refugee Agency.

According to the report, at least 10 million people across the world do not have citizenship and a third of them are children.

It was also reported that during the census in 2001 in Ukraine, 82,000 people said that they do not have citizenship. Most of these people lived in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, and the Odessa, Donetsk, and Dnipropetrovsk regions.

"According to rough estimates by the United Nations Refugee Agency in June 2017, Ukraine has more than 35,000 people without citizenship or at risk of being stateless," the report says.

The UN agency notes that a significant part of them belong to ethnic minorities, such as Roma.
