Well, as far as I know this is the first case of somebody leaving "illegaly" of the non-soviet Russia. There have been other kids leave, but I dont' think Russia has demanded they return and finish military service. They are in this case. And if you go back to when Fetisov and Mogilny came over - that is a much different situation as that was just a way for the west to stick it to the communist world.
