List of English words of Russian origin
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Strictly speaking, this is the list of English words borrowed from Russian. Not all of them are of truly Russian origin. Most of them are used to denote things and notions specific to Russia, Russian culture, politics, history, and only a few of them, such as mammoth, vodka, intelligentsia, taiga, tundra, pogrom, and possibly some others are in the "mainstream" usage, independent of Russian conext.
