Well Ust-kamenogorsk actually is the "nowhere" right now - Astana is the capital of the country and that's where the money obviously is. Similarly that's why a team with great school like Voskresensk basically lost their club to Mitischi.

Yes of course, it matters who lives in the area, but it has nothing to do with something as vague as nationality in Kazakhstan, but rather with the inhabitant (especially those with financial power) wallets.
