I am not sure about Krutov. i think he and Zhukov never played for Switzerland/Sweden. Trukhno played for Russia, he just grew up in Denmark.
Patzold aswell as Dzhunusov and Kotchnev are from Kazakhstan, Patzold is an ethnic "russian german" and Dzhunussow is probably either tatar or kazakh.
Though you can probably add Komarov and Tymashov(Ukranian) and Matushkin to the list.
Oh, and Mark and Sebastian Owuya of course.
