Because you are changing the boot with a russian-developed tool.
I mean, I've looked at the script files in UBU and hex output from UBU and it does what it says and nothing more. There is no reason to fear that tool solely for being Russian. It utilizes UEFITool and AMITool for the injections (which are both made in the west if you're a rusophobe) and there is absolutely nothing nefarious there.
Being afraid of something because a russian made it is silly. Anyone can make bad software. You should be critisizing people for using any tool without a reputable coder or (better) a source audit, not for using a "scary russian" tool. That tool is at least open in that it's literally a batch script wrapper for other open source utilities. It can be audited. It has been (by my person, at minimum). It is harmless.
If you want to know something scary, it's that the forum you have to download it from (win-raid) seems to be using a reversible hash on passwords, and other bad practices.
