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.

Re: Why do so many Russians change their nationality?

being a Kazakhstani citizen is apparently a trend these days for young russians...of course, representing a country with vast oil resources is quite an incentive too

I see. Okay, awesome! I probably could've googled this, but I was feeling lazy.

How much money are we talking?

Re: Why do so many Russians change their nationality?

Kazakstan is now a pretty hot country. They even have a special policy aimed at attracting foreigners:

Under the leadership of Nursultan Nazarbayev, which can be termed enlightened authoritarianism, the Republic of Kazakhstan has enacted some degrees of multiculturalism in order to retain and attract talents from diverse ethnic groups among its citizenry, and even from nations that are developing ties of cooperation with the country, in order to coordinate human resources onto the state-guided path of global market economic participation. This notable principle of the Kazakh leadership has earned it the name "Singapore of the Steppes"

Re: Why do so many Russians change their nationality?

I think if you arent considered an amazing talent or near the top of the heap you dont get much funding or assistance from the Russia Federation. Kazakhstan offers the money and assistance

Cash, and the chance to play Fed Cup and the Olympics. That was a big part in Slava changing nationality.

Re: Why do so many Russians change their nationality?

It is good to be part of glorious kingdom.

I guess it's not that big a leap - WikiP:
Quote:
by the mid-19th century all of Kazakhstan was part of the Russian Empire. Following the 1917 Russian Revolution, and subsequent civil war, the territory of Kazakhstan was reorganized several times before becoming the Kazakh Soviet Socialist Republic in 1936, a part of the USSR.

Kazakhstan declared itself an independent country on December 16, 1991, the last Soviet republic to do so.
