Moscow: Supporters of US President Donald Trump are now seeking Russian citizenship, a Russian official has revealed in a statement.
Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said she had received messages from supporters of US President Donald Trump on social media.
She says the messages ask supporters of the US president to provide information on how to obtain Russian citizenship.
According to Zakharova, such messages are coming from people who have supported the Republican Party and who are now afraid of possible persecution by the US administration because of their political views.
It is to be noted that during the meeting to ratify the results of the presidential election in Washington, there was a commotion among the supporters of Donald Trump. Four people, including a woman, were killed and several others were injured in a clash between Trump supporters and police during a riot outside the Capitol Hill building.
Police arrested several people involved in the incident and seized some weapons from the scene. The incident is being condemned by all. Newly elected US President Joe Biden called the riot of Trump supporters a betrayal.
