Under the terms of new legislation nominally intended to promote the repatriation of "Russian compatriots" and thus help solve Russia`s demographic problems, Moscow can now offer Russian Federation citizenship to more than eight million Ukrainians, even though the Ukrainian constitution prohibits dual citizenship.

Oh yes, and don't even think about becoming a Russian citizen if you don't intend to permanently settle here: the process is so hard and you need so much paperwork that it will eat a few months of your time.
If you just want to be able to stay in Russia a long time,you can do like most people: get a 1-year multiple entry so-called "business" visa. See more information about this here:
