The best solution would be to contact the Russian embassy or consulate to see the best way to go about it, as they will know for sure what to do.
Russia do recognize dual citizenship but Russia demands from its citizens to use Russian passport when coming out of the country and to Russia. Bure,Jashin,Gonchar and so on have dual citizenship.
