Sounds like Russian sites/boards were none too pleased to hear that.
Whats the big deal? He was trying to say that ethnically he's not Russian - he is'nt. He's Tartar-Muslim not an ethnic Russian. He was being asked a million times "You are Russian, how do we know you wont go back to play in the KHL". Well yeah his passport is for the Russian Federation, but his cultural and ethnic identity are most definitly not Russian.
