** The ''creation'' of the USSR in the first place may be an even bigger aversion, if you think about it. Centuries of czarist rule and tradition were replaced with ideas which came from a German guy living in England, and who was a pretty committed Russophobe at that.

** The "off" or "koff" ending is Bulgarian, not Russian; however, names of Russian historical figures may be transcribed with an "off" ending, as this was the way the very Russian "-ov" was usually transcribed in French and from time to time in English until around the end of the 19th century. (This is why older translations of FyodorDostoevsky's [[Literature/TheBrothersKaramazov final novel]] spell it ''The Brothers Karamazoff'', and why the US-based vodka maker is spelled Smirnoff.)

* Fluffy hats. Yes, they are somewhat practical during the long cold winter, but they are not part of the national dress. The ''ushanka'' is a functional winterized headgear, as simple as that. Also not really big and fluffy. In modern Russia they even aren't very common, worn by mostly older people; young folks prefer more international headgear like knitted caps. But an ushanka made of fake bluish fur is still standard issue for soldiers and policemen during winter.
