List of Russians

This is a list of people associated with Imperial Russia, the Soviet Union, and Russia of today. For a long time Russia has been a multinational country, and many people of different ethnicity contributed to its culture, to its glory, and to its sorrow. They may be ethnic Ukrainians (like Nikolai Gogol and Milla Jovovich), Georgians (like Georgi Daneliya), Belarusians (like Kazimir Malevich), Tatars (like Rudolf Nureyev and Marat Safin), Azerbaijanis (like Kerim Kerimov and Uzeyir Hajibeyov), Jews (like Trotsky and Maya Plisetskaya), Poles (like Vaslav Nijinsky), Armenians (like Aram Katchaturian and Victor Ampartsoumian), Germans (like Catherine the Great), Danish (like Vitus Bering and Vladimir Dal), French (like Karl Briullov, Marius Petipa), Greeks (like John Capodistria), Romanians (like Mikhail Kheraskov), Dutch (like Sergius Witte), Portuguese (like Anton de Vieira), or, naturally, ethnic Russians. Sometimes their exact ancestry is unknown. Sometimes their formal nationality was written down at random or for political or other reasons. They may have emigrated or immigrated, and thus may appear in other "Lists of...", but nevertheless their names are linked to the words "Russia", "Russian".
