Allan in your experience and knowledge which countries as an alternative can we be married with less red tape then in Russia and that would be mutually recognized by Russia and USA?
There are marriage destination wedding spots all over the world. Las Vegas is one example. Suppose two Italians fly to Las Vegas and marry, then return to Italy. They are married for all purposes. The only time a marriage is not recognized by U.S. immigration rules is when it is against U.S. public policy, such as a bigamous marriage or same sex marriage (currently). Otherwise, a marriage is valid if it is performed in accordance with the laws of that place.
Marriage destinations include Cyprus, Thailand, most islands in the Caribbean, Denmark, and I believe Gibraltar. There are many other places as well. Not every place allows foreigners to come and marry. Destination weddings help support a local tourism industry so you need to find a place that allows foreigners to marry. Google “worldwide marriage destination spots” for more information. Ask about wedding packages. Check to make sure you both can obtain visitor visas to visit that country so you can marry there.
If you can marry, then the marriage is recognized worldwide.
