But on my russian passport my name is ALBINA CALDWELL AND ON MY USA PASSPORT IS Albina Delara Davidson. Do i need a visa in order to travel to Russia, Nizhnekamsk??? and how can i travel on two different names. both passport are valid. But Russian consulate could not give me a passport under davidson name because i didnt have the name change document so i am going to get a lawyer get me a  document saying my name was albina caldwell but now its changed to Albina Delara Davidson.
