After his Moscow seminar on March 17 Jeff gave a huge interview to Russian MMA portal valetudo.ru. As a part of it, he was asked:

- Is it a joke or true that you want to get a citizenship of Russia?

- No, it is not a joke. I'm working on it right now. I want to. Loooking for the possibility.                                                                                                                                                                                        You can read the full interview @ valetudo.ru (in Russian):

For all the problems the US has, it is infinitely a better country to live in than Russia. Russia is bordering on a totalitarian regime.

He is popular in Russia and he is a much bigger draw over there. So maybe it's not political at all. Phone Post

If he is doing it as a slap in the face to America then he should go but he needs to renounce his US citizenship first so he can't run back as soon as he realizes he has made a mistake.

He might want to consider reading this book and see what happened to a bunch of folks who did it:

http://www.amazon.com/The-Forsaken-American-Tragedy-Stalins/dp/0143115421/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1363699433&sr=8-4&keywords=americans+in+russia

"In 1934, a photograph was taken of a baseball team. These two rows of young men look like any group of American ballplayers, except perhaps for the Russian lettering on their jerseys. The players have left their homeland and the Great Depression in search of a better life in Stalinist Russia, but instead they will meet tragic and, until now, forgotten fates. Within four years, most of them will be arrested alongside untold numbers of other Americans. Some will be executed. Others will be sent to "corrective labor" camps where they will be worked to death. This book is the story of lives-the forsaken who died and those who survived."

shit nothing wrong with wanting to be a citizen of another country. it probably means he can come and go from there with no problem. He probably makes a ton of money in seminars and stuff over there. Making money is the AMERICAN way!

As a fellow anarcho-communist, i can't understand why anyone would want to go to neo-nazi central....

.... even if he is a draw there, loves drinking and drugs and hot russian chix... well, i guess it's not a bad idea, now that i think about it.

Cyril Jeff -

He is an anarchist. He is suppose to hate Putin and his Siloviki more the anyone on this planet.

Well i guess he would be in good company considering to move of the big nose and the grand dame.

Just a though, maybe the flat 13 percentage rate has something to do with it.

More money for russian girls lol Phone Post

^Yep.

The irony seems lost on him though. He hates capitalism because it allows economic inequality . . . so he wants to go to Russia where he can make more money. Phone Post
