Polischuk I think is the odd case, don't know when his family moved (I forget)

Andrushenko played for Ukraine at the WJCs. Seems to be an ongoing drama.

other guys got Russian citizenship, so they are dual citizens, especially the younger guys (yes, both countries have different laws on dual citizenship, but we're not in court so meh)

It's a mucky situation, I agree, but they are all (save for Vykhin) Ukrainian born, Ukrainian citizens, and Ukrainian trained to some extent. Splitting hairs over what happened once their careers got going is just that, mucky and not worth the inquiry IMO.
