Are Russians evil?
Are Russia/SU immigrants/" 'persecuted' jewry" to the religious(?) state of Israel still considered to be "Russians" ?
, like Israel-u.s. dual citizens are considered to be Americans ?

I don’t understand the question. To begin with, I don’t think that “evil” applies to ethnic groups. Past that, considered by whom?
That's understandble kosh that you don't understand the question. Suppose we just substitute "white folks", "iranians", "north koreans", "jews", "evangelists", "americans" and see that it's a really simple question that we'd expect should evoke from everyone, everywhere, all of Time from every human being,: No ! Absolutely NOT !!
at least hopefully from more than a simple majority of us about whom i am maimed in spirit wondering in the aforementioned context whether a simple majority of americans now would at least say "No. Russians are not evil." Simple answer. Could lead to a discussion about the word evil, Russians, Russophobia, "false propaganda", and who knows what,,, except i'm a bit surprised, but not really, as its you me that the very first comment would be... anyway, pleased to have dialogue with you as we drift among the flotsam and jetsam holding onto it for dear life else we sink to oblivion.
When one has suspicions about something it's not too difficult nowadays to relatively quickly find some evidence that appears to support one's suspicion; as such it is with my suspicion about the extent to which Russian emigres who become citizens of other countries and who still consider themselves to be Russian.
''' ...in 1991, 47,276 Jews immigrated to Israel from Russia, while 10,196 left to resettle in the United States, according to Mark Tolts, a demographics researcher at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. These numbers do not include Jews who immigrated to other countries such as Germany, nor do they include non-Jewish immigration.
Journalist Masha Gessen said thousands of people could lose their citizenship as a result of the new regulations, which she described as “really bizarre,” “insane” and “amazing.”
“There cannot be such a thing as a person who was born on Russian territory and is not a Russian citizen,” she said. “It’s blatantly illegal and unconstitutional what they’re doing. I think it goes with the general thinking in Russia today that everyone who is abroad is a traitor and shouldn’t be allowed to participate in the political process.”
She suggested the move might be due to the concern of Vladimir Putin’s government about the voting power of Russian Israelis. “Israel has been a huge voting population, and I think that this may have to do with that,” she said.

''' " I’ve always had two citizenships, two languages, two identities and two cultures. It’s who I am,” said Katya Rouzina, a 27-year-old college Russian instructor and graduate student who expects her Russian passport application will be rejected—as was this reporter’s—because she left Russia before February 1992. Like many Russian expatriates, Rouzina, who moved to the United States when she was 1-year-old, considers her continued tie to Russia a matter of identity. “They can’t just randomly say you’re not a Russian citizen anymore. That just makes me angry,” she said.
Like the United States, the Russian Federation allows for dual citizenship, though estimates of how many Russians have this status vary widely. Konstantin Romodanovsky, the director of Russia’s Federal Migration Service, told the newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda that between 1 million and 6 million Russians have dual citizenship.

Our u.s. mainstream media -funny to me that in this matter i'd assert that our fox news talking skirts channel is not among those in this claim, though in most other cases i'd adamantly claim otherwise- near invariably speaks of "the Russians" as Israeli speak of "Irani" or as national socialist capitalist of the previous alleged christian century spoke of "Jude". Our culture -more like our predatory economy that sustains and rewards it- only knows animosity towards others... how the west and rest was won by US, we gotta keep it up since the way this real estate revolves the west is forever expanding before US, our backs to the sun.
