What is your advice to the Muslims in Russia?
I advise the Muslims in general, and the people of the Sunnah specifically with holding on to their religion and bitting down upon it with their molar teeth. And I impede you with the utmost prevention from living amongst the disbelievers from what transpires of imitating their behaviors with your abundance of mixing and living with them. As this will (eventually) corrupt the religion of the person. Likewise a person will not be able to raise his own children upon the correct Islamic upbringing and the legislative moral character.
The man that killed one hundred people was advised by the scholar to depart to such and such a land where the people there worship Allah and to worship Allah with them. Also not to return to his land because it was indeed a land of corruption.
And the Prophet ﷺ left the most beloved land to him, Makkah, and migrated to Madina. This was not done except for the purpose of completing the worship of Allah the Most-High, to openly display Islam. So residing in the lands of the disbelievers has with it many harms and evils. So I advise the Muslims to choose a Muslim country (to reside in) where one can establish his religion openly and can preserve himself, his family and children.
And Allah knows best.
