: I wonder if there are any russian derivatives in modern English?
There are English words which are "borrowed" from the Russian, such as "dacha", "samovar", "troika".
Having "borrowed" them for such a long time it is unlikely we shall give them back.
Then there are more recent terms, such as "glasnost" and "perestroika", but they appear to apply to a specific period rather than being in general use.
