Now you won't surprise anyone with dual citizenship, but the stars have always been patriotic and tried not to advertise it. Nowadays, many celebrities live in two countries: they earn in one and spend in another.
The famous TV presenter and showman Ivan Urgant has recently two passports: Russian and Israeli. In June 2018, a rumor circulated on the Web that Urgant had become an Israeli citizen. First, he denied these rumors, and then confirmed. On June 11, 2018, he and his family approved the application. In order to obtain a foreign passport, it is necessary to prove that the person has or had relatives who lived in Israel. In his Instagram, Urgant said that he was not going to move, and his grandmother and aunt, who raised him and whom he loves very much, are buried in Tel Aviv.
Another presenter of Channel One has not only a Russian passport. Vladimir Pozner is a citizen of three countries at once: Russia, USA and France. The circumstances under which he obtained three different passports remain unknown. This state of affairs has become the reason for sidelong glances at the TV presenter. He condemned other colleagues for obtaining citizenship of other countries, but said that he was not going to hand over his own. He himself does not see "anything like that" in triple citizenship and refers to the hopelessness and the current situation in the country.
The singer received a second citizenship for a very long time. Leontyev has not only a Russian, but also an American passport. Previously, he lived in the United States for a long time. In the 90s, he had the idea of obtaining citizenship, and he was able to. Now the artist has a villa in Miami. For some time there were rumors that he was going to sell it and move to Rublevka, but Leontyev denied them. He said that life on the ocean coast is cheaper than in the most elite district of Moscow. He jokingly calls his home on another continent "a house in the village."
