comment Russia: need to disclose encryption keys to FSB
This site is not just for theoretical crypto, but questions like this are somewhat borderline at best, and previous discussions have supported (or at least not contradicted) the consensus that pure legal questions are generally off-topic here. Information Security apparently tolerates them a bit more than we do, at least if they're "useful for a wide IT-security related audience."

I suspect this is more of a question for Super User, or maybe Stack Overflow. But yes, in a sensible VM implementation, the guest OS ought to have some way to obtain entropy from the host (or at least have a seed file provided at start-up).
