Russia was known as Rishi Varsha an it surrounded the Bharata Varsha as described in the Puranas.
There have migrations from India, from the Sarasvati Valley Civilization,from the Dravida Kingdoms, and from the North again.
There is enough evidence in the present Russia right from the names of Rivers,Olga,Moksha from which Moscow is derived,Karaggana, Utkaraganga,
People living in the valley of the River Moksha spoke a language Moksha!
Place Arkaim, the name of Surya, Sun is Arka.
Arkaim is an important archeological site .
Many Hindu Ritual signs are found here.
One finds the designs of swastika here and this site is dated 4500BC!
But reasonable reactions notwithstanding, why have people who are looking for their roots in the direction of Vedic ancestry been more suspect than any other indigenous people curious about their heritage? After all, it would appear to be an uncommonly large area upon which such ancestors would have enjoyed their apparently advanced culture. Such a culture would seem to have “fed” much of what we now call Western civilization and parts of Asia, including migrated tribes, such as American Indians and even Europeans settling America.
Moreover, as we also explore elsewhere regarding linguistic research efforts around the so-called Nostratic or Proto-Language question, some linguists are struggling with the possibility of linguistic ancestral roots for possibly ALL humankind, of all colors, so that the suspect idea of any “superiority” should be supported as an excitement for all of humanity maybe re-discovering its true origin and common spiritual heritage.

Kaikeyi of Ramayana was born here.

One has to cross riverChakshus to reach Kekaya. This river is now known as Oxus . It is shown in blue colour in this picture”
The Route to Russia,, Mahabharata.
People who lived in the valley near Moscow worshiped Indra and Vayu.
Moscow Empire was ruled by women called Sthree Rajya.
It was dominated by women – due to which it got the name Sthree Rajya – the land of women or dominated by women. They were supposed to seduce men and lead a free life.
Varaha mihira has mentioned this place as one of the countries surrounding Bharatha varsha.
Vatsyanana also has mentioned about Sthree Rajya in the context of “Grama naari vishayam” where he has said that the women of Sthree Rajya were free to have sex with a any man they liked.
Bhattasmin , the commentator for Artha sastra also has talked about SthreRajya as a country abounding in luxurious artilces and happiness.
