Russia picked up the words of the Ukrainian boxer on the refusal of the title of Hero of Ukraine.

The Deputy of the State Duma of Russia Dmitry Svishchev after the statement of the absolute world champion on Boxing in heavy weight Ukrainian Alexander Usik that he doesn’t need the title “Hero of Ukraine”, proposed to consider the option of granting Ukrainian citizenship to Russian.

“Usyk was born in the Crimea, in Simferopol and Crimea is part of Russia (Crimea was occupied by Russia in 2014 – approx.).

I think that Alexander would any power. Personally do not know him, but judging by actions, is a person with high moral and ethical mores. The tendril never said a bad word about Ukraine or about Russia, he always restrained in his comments, despite the difficult situation between the two countries.

While such a request is not followed, it is premature to discuss something, but if the Tendril will seek to naturalize it in Russia – is worth considering. Any country with pleasure would give to Alexander the right of residence and citizenship,” – said the Deputy.

Alexander Usik held in Kiev meeting with fans. See vivid photos from the event.

Recall that to assign the title of Hero of Ukraine has proposed Prime Minister Vladimir Groisman.
