Pretty much.

Or he can stay in Russia, he just won't be able to play in the KHL.

And he'll be suspended by the Habs for breach of contract and most likely by the IIHF as a result, so he won't be playing for Russia in any IIHF event.

I still say this is a RDS misunderstanding or Markov simply doesn't know about the KHL-NHL agreement to respect each other's deals.
