My friend is pure Russian and is having a hard time surviving in the USA. Is it possible he would obtain citizenship back to Russia?

    Being ethnically Russian is unrelated to whether one qualifies for citizenship in Russia. Your friend would have to do some research to see if there's any way for him to move to Russia.

    If his mother is Russian, he is already a Russian citizen through jus sanguinis and can apply for a Russian passport through the Russian Embassy in the US. He will just need permission from his American father as well as his mother to get a passport if he's under the age of 18

    If he's over 18 he can apply on his own. He will need his mother's birth certificate from Russia or a copy of her Russian passport and his birth certificate. He has to contact the Russian Embassy for the correct paperwork

    And contrary to popular opinion Russia DOES allow dual citizenship and several million Russians have dual citizenship. There are certain circumstances, and having a Russian and a foreign parent or being born to a Russian parent in a country that grants automatic citizenship is one circumstance where the person is allowed to hold Russian and another citizenship

    He never lost it by leaving. All he has to do is go home.

    Having trouble "surviving"? Is your friend locked up in your basement? Are you letting your friend drink water?

    You don't lose your Russian citizenship unless you willfully and legally denounce it, and the US supports dual citizenship so there's something off about your question.
