Referring this question, I have the following thought.
TL;DR: Willingness to obtain Russian citizenship may be considered as a way of assisting Russian terrorism. Should the community support such questions?
Today's Russian regime is known to abuse Russian citizenship to invade countries. The typical pattern is as follows:
- Russian gov't issues Russian passports to whoever wants them, regardless whether or not it violates local laws of the countries, many of which prevent dual citizenship;
- In return, these people sign some agreements with Russian secret service, KGB, agreeing to participate in protest actions, claimed that "Russian citizens are discriminated" in their country of living;
- Russia invades the target country "to defend Russian citizens" or otherwise destabilize situation there.
This happened several times already:
While the majority of Moldovans see themselves as culturally close to Romania, 200,000 people in Transnistria are ethnic Russians and have Russian citizenship, which could serve as a pretext for Russian action. — International Business Times
Most residents of South Ossetia are Russian citizens with Russian passports. — Wikipedia
Russian marine and air power head for Syria versus Western intervention – “to defend Russian citizens,” says Moscow — prisonplanet.com
Lavrov: Troops in Crimea Protecting Russian Citizens — Voice of America
Plus numerous times abusing Russian minorities in Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Belorussia.
Considering the above, willingness to get Russian passport may be considered an attempt to build a Russian minority in yet another country that will be subsequently "defended" by Russian tanks or terror squadrons.
P.S. I'm aware that my question may look like a strong accusation. It requires a large article to explain everything in details, which is impossible to accomplish within a single Meta question.
P.P.S. I'm quite aware that the original asker may not have direct willingness to participate that, and my question is primarily based on precaution that is easy to prevent but hard to resolve once it happened.
