Why do so many Russians change their nationality?
Not really a big deal, may not belong is General Messages, but I digress.
I was looking at the livescore for Cincinnati and noticed that Yulia Putintseva is now also representing Kazakhstan. Now, normally I wouldn't really notice something like that, but it seems like so many of the younger Russians are now choosing to represent Kazakhstan. Is it for the chance to go to the Olympics in the future? That was my best guess (although a dumb one), but I'd like some other opinions.
