 Here are some of the people I saw in Russia.  Not all of them are actually Russians.  In fact, some of them are most likely foreign tourists, or migrant workers.

A babushka (grandmother, old lady) selling Russian dolls on the road side.

Young women wearing very high heels.  At least I think those are very high, at least 5 inches.  There are lots and lots of them.

Cassock-wearing Orthodox clerics at the Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius monastery in Zagorsk, said to be the spiritual capital of the Russia Orthodox Church.

Workers renovating the facade of Putin’s office in the Kremlin.

A man drinking on the streets of Moscow.

Tourists admiring the Moscow underground station, or just trying to find their way.
