didnt know where to put this, but another 5th coloumnist may get what is coming to him. A bill from opposition parties are pushing to strip citizenship for people such as Kasyanov for their blatant work for another country.
Kasparov, Navalny, Kasyanov, Ponomarev, Kudrin are subversion specialists and should have their assets frozen and seized!
And their families should be arrested and "relocated" just to make sure they don't spread their ideological subversion!
I don't know about you, but since you are in US, you would not be able to go to Russia (especially if you were a US politician) and asked Russian or Chinese politicians to have them sanction your fellow countrymen, and then expect to keep your job.
Which currently elected or appointed Russian politicians are going abroad and asking for sanctions?
There is no rule that says a random party member can't go abroad and criticize the government. This is not the USSR.
And yes, as a US citizen, I could go to Russia, say that US Imperialism needs to be stopped or something similar, and I would not lose my citizenship on coming back.
Just like in any sane country.
In the link I provided, states the head of an opposition party is going to USA to ask congress to put sanctions on various Russians (journalists included). No, I doubt if you were a party official, you could do that, or at least do that and keep your job. Current party in Russia is saying that he should lose his position/job or at least be told he cannot run as a party official. It is Fair Russia party saying he should be stripped of his citizenship.
Edit: Maybe not head of a party but major party member. Add to that, going and saying how bad USA is, is one thing. Asking for sanctions against your own people is a different matter.
