Russia had no problem snatching Volosozhar from Ukraine. But I suppose Russia regards Ukraine as a vassal state.
Yes and No.

If she does enlists-she will most likely get an "elite sportswoman" status-which means she won't get hurt.
She can always pull a "Bar Rafaeli" and get married-Married women are not subject to military service.
Don't forget that the Israeli army is not the Russian army.
IN addition under the sportswoman status she would not be enlisted the way most people are- she'd be given time to train, able to compete, and as noted not given an assignment where injury was in ANY way likely.
