I know Martina Navratilova lost her citizenship when she defected from Czechoslovakia (granted years before). I haven't been able to find anything definitive but If Nedved lost his citizenship the point is moot since the only country he could represent was Canada at the time.

Gaiduchenko stated he wants to go help and rebuild Lokomotiv, I guess it depends if Loko wants him, or if Donbass gives him a boat load of cash.
