We report on a theoretical study of activated de-correlation of pump and signal states of polarization in a fiber Raman amplifier based on 10 km of fiber with two-scale fiber spinning profile. As a result of the de-correlation, polarization dependent gain can be suppressed to 0.11 dB, PMD to 0.037 ps/km1/2 and gain can be increased to 15 dB.
