Is 'Glee' Moving Kurt Hummel To Russia?

Glee has returned to headlines this year with twists and turns and tragedy, but a new development might ensure that the Fox show's place in Internet discussion forums continues through next season. According to E!, producers are planning to move Kurt Hummel to Russia, where the country's anti-gay law could make for piercing and important storylines. 

E! reports:

The Fox hit is considering moving a major storyline—and its most notable gay character— to Russia for the sixth and (presumably) final season, according to multiple insiders who work on the show. "We are mulling around the idea of moving Kurt (Chris Colfer) to Russia," says one source, adding that creator Ryan Murphy and his production team are entertaining three possible ideas for the final year. One is to move the series' storyline solely to New York City. Another is to move Kurt to Russia. And another remains to be seen, but could possibly include McKinley High (the series' original home).

Kurt recently got engaged to his on-off boyfriend Blaine (Darren Criss) in one of TV's most elaborate engagement scenes, a storyline that was prompted in part by the Defense of Marriage Act ruling...Clearly, both the New York and Russia plans have a lot of moving parts to consider. For example: Would Blaine or any of the main characters join Kurt in Russia?

I like the idea of keeping everyone that's in the story line now and including some of the ones that were in the beggining of the show (adding more storylines for them) in the final season. And maybe where each of them are once they "become old" as the finale.

Is this proposed Russia idea in response to Russia's anti-gay regime and propaganda?

This would definitely stir up a lot of trouble for out fabulous favorite!  I would definitely NOT want to see him leave Rachel and the rest!  That just spells disaster to me!
