Come And Keep Your Comrades Warm

From Feministing via Hit & Run, some Russian nationalists are supporting a measure to deport and seize the Russian assets of any Russian women who marry outside of Russia:

It envisages severe penalties for Russian girls or women who "unpatriotically" choose to wed a foreigner, a trend the LDPR believes is robbing the country's gene pool of its greatest resource.

In rhetoric uncomfortably reminiscent of that used by the Nazis, the party believes that the large number of Russian women taking foreign spouses is a threat to national security that risks undermining Russian identity and "the purity of the Russian race". It is proposing punishing such female "traitors" by stripping them of their Russian citizenship, deporting them to the country of their new husband and never allowing them to return. The LDPR also wants them to feel the pain in their pockets and is suggesting that their Russian assets be automatically distributed among their relatives or given to the state.

States the bills main proponent, Nikolai Kuryanovich:

"Our wonderful women are the best in the world...Wherever I have been, I have rarely seen beautiful girls, only in Russia and some other Slav nations."

He's over thrity years too late in this sentiment. Mr. Kuryanovich, meet Sir Paul McCartney:

Well the Ukraine girls really knock me out

They leave the west behind
And Moscow girls make me sing and shout
That Georgia's always on my my my my my my my my my mind

- Back In the USSR
