1. I'm satisfied that I am a Russian. Or 2. I'm satisfied with being a Russian. Or 3...to be a Russian. Or 4...for being a Russian?

Which ones are right?

    The first one has a different meaning. "I've been looking into my ancestry. While the records are not always clear, and there are many similar names, I am now satisified that I am Russian by descent." That means that I have enough evidence to conclude that my ancestry is Russian.  If you have always known that you were Russian, the second sentence is better, although I agree that the word "content" would be a better choice. 

    3 and 4 are just wrong.

    What @Gypsyfish said, but I'll just add as another couple of options, "I'm happy to be a Russian" or "I'm pleased that I'm a Russian".

    The first two are fine. The last two are not quite right and, as a result, are best avoided.

    The verb to be is used in both expressions, and both are correct. 'With being' is a bit more passive, but that's not a grammatical issue - that's an issue of style.

    Ditch the word satisfied. You are CONTENT with being Russian.

    1. Awkward.

    2. Not quite the way to put it.

    3. That's the one.

    4. Grammatically incorrect.
