Maybe Russian immigration may not find out but won't the agent at the SVO/DME check for a US Visa which won't be in the argentine passport thus forcing you to show the US passport?

My wife is a dual national UK - South Africa, and we regularly travel between the two.
As you say, she enters and exits each country with that country's passport. So exit UK on UK passport, enter SA on SA passport. Depart SA on SA passport, enter UK on UK passport. Since the UK now requires SA citizens to acquire tourist visas in advance, at the gate in JNB there was an additional check for passport / visa requirements. It is only at this point that she would show the UK passport, as proof of status to enter the UK (well Schengen actually as we were flying KL to AMS). SA emigration controls do not care about visa requirements into other countries - only that you have left SA, and not outstayed you visa (if not SA citizen).

My example. APIS has made travelling on two passports more confusing.
I travel between the UK and Canada very regularly and am a citizen of both. When I am going to the UK I check-in using my British passport (because of APIS) and show my British passport upon landing at LHR or anywhere in the EU. On the way back I check-in using my Canadian passport (due to APIS) and show my British passport throughout security (probably pointless to do, but whatever). Upon landing in Canada I show my Canadian passport.

My girlfriend is dual Russian/US. She goes back to Russia several times a year. When she checks in in the US, she uses her US passport, but shows her Russian passport so they won't question the lack of visa. On arrival in Russia, she simply shows her Russian passport.
On her departure, she checks in using her US passport, but again shows the Russian so the agents don't question the lack of visa. At immigration, she shows her Russian only.
Everything is quick and painless.

Well since there is no real exit formalities in the US, in your case of heading to Argentina, I would exit the US on the Argentine passport and ensure the agent swipes that for the APIS info.
From work experience I know APIS is quite important for the authorities and if you show up as someone else than what they expected this can cause differing levels of confusion.

what is APIS
|Quoting Quokka (Reply 11):|
Advanced Passenger Information, collected by the airlines and provided to the authorities in some countries so that those countries can check whether you are on a no-fly list or might be a potential terrorist.

As for checking for stamps? Well, in my case there are waaay too many (have addedd extra pages twice) from many dodgy countries for them to notice or care.

Ive heard that a CBP officer can begin to question why youve been to certain places even when you return on a completely separate trip.

SGSufu wrote:I have US Passport and a passport from Africa. They have different given names but same surname. Let's say I wanted to travel from US to the country in Africa I hold nationality. That nation requires US citizens to apply for a visa prior to going there. I obviously use the info from my African passport to book and check in. My African passport has not been used to enter the US or has any travel stamps/visas in it, it is blank. What are the outcomes of going through TSA leaving the US with a US Passport and the African passport? Thanks.
Aeroflot001 wrote:Another issues that also came to mind is using your dual nationality to your advantage to avoid the need for certain visas, For example the same person travels from MIA to Moscow and presents his Argentine passport to Russian Authorites (thanks to a recent visit of President Kirchner to Russia Visas are no longer required to travel between both countries) may there be any issues if they realize you are also a US citizen upon exiting Russia?
