Rendy asks: Hello. I am Czech citizen. I got married with Ukrainian girl. She has been living in Czech Republic for last 15 years, has permanent residence here. After wedding she was told she has to go back to Ukraine to make new UKR internal passport (change surname). Based on that they can make new international passport on UKR embassy here in Prague. Well is it really needed for her to go back to Ukraine to ask for new internal passport?? According to my understanding internal UKR passport is needed just for ppl living in Ukraine. Is my assumption correct? Thanks!
Expert's answer:
Yes, you are right. An internal Ukrainian passport is needed only to identify a citizen of Ukraine inside the country. An international Ukrainian passport is used similarly when a citizen of Ukraine is abroad. So if she has no problems at the moment with her current documents then receiving new documents is not required. Especially if she soon becomes a Czech citizen.

Sergey asks: How to obtain Ukrainian Citizenship if I was born in Ukraine and living in the UK long time?
Expert's answer:
Most probably you have the right to acquire Ukrainian citizenship by geographic place of origin. The main issue is that Ukraine doesn't recognize double citizenship, so you have to pledge to terminate your other citizenship to become a citizen of Ukraine. You can get more info on the site of the Migration Service of Ukraine.
Niki Killian asks: According to the map there are radiation hot spots to the north east of the exclusion zone, what would cause the higher radiation levels so far away.
Expert's answer:
It is really not that far away, check this map. Winds at different heights spread clouds with radioactive particles throughout Europe and around the world. An intense release of radioactivity into the atmosphere in the form of a jet, which continuously changed its initial direction following the direction of the wind, was observed for about 10 days.

The validity period of the Ukrainian international passport is 10 years, but for the persons who are not yet 16 - 5 years. So you should get a new international passport, contact the embassy of Ukraine to Pakistan. Ukrainian internal passport is needed only when you are in Ukraine.
