1) Finland. Komorov is in the same situation. Born and raised in Finland. Russian name, Russian citizenship (dual) and Burke loves him. I find it hard to believe a simple last name is going to turn Burke off on a player. Suggesting so is...********.
2) Not at all. If you read the post at all, you would have seen that Russians haven't exactly been taken in high number recently. Not all that difficult to draw a conclusion.
