Kevin Johnson says he won’t give up US citizenship

– Jeff Monson received Russian citizenship and renounced US citizenship. Do you have any ideas for following his example?

“Not at the moment, because I will have to go back to America. I have too much to do there. I have a house there, a mother, a daughter, six brothers and sisters. And they can’t all travel now. I haven’t seen my family for five years.

During this time, I traveled all over the world. From the Dominican Republic I flew to Colombia, from there to London, then to Germany for business. At that time the coronavirus and BLM happened, I didn’t have the opportunity to go back to America. I did business, went to Serbia, then returned to Germany, from where I came to Russia.

– It turns out that you will have two passports – Russian and American.

– Yes.

“How long are you going to live in Russia?”

– Always. I always come to Russia because my mother is going to Thailand. It is better to have heavenly apartments all over the world than to live in a single house. I bought myself a small house in Thailand where I can spend my holidays and relax when I get old.

“What Russian words do you know?”

— My favorite expression is: “You are very beautiful” (he speaks in Russian). Naturally, this is referring to a lady. I have a Russian teacher, whose name is Victoria, and she has a dog (the last word is in Russian). So I know the phrases ‘come here’, ‘my name is’, ‘how are you’, ‘very good’, ‘excellent’, Johnson said in an interview with .
