I have worked many Russians on CW and SSB on the VO-52
stations like RX9AT, UA9UKO, UA8MLT,  UA3AIC, UN7RBD, UA9UEG, UA9SAN, 
UA9ULT, UN4PW, UU6JG, etc.
These stations are from Ukaraine, Kazakigstan etc, Me being located in South 
India I just get about a minute or so to complete a contact, its just at the 
fringe of the foot print.
Similarly had also worked 4L0G from Georgia ( Eu Russia )
I can hear many more talking in Russian but very little time to get into 
their QSO.
But once your call is known they do reply, I wish to add that these Russians 
follow band discipline, mode segements specially working on the Linear
