You got to admit. Most of the hottest women ever featured online (and even on Instagram) are Russians. I don’t know but those sunkissed, bikini-clad models are just too hot not to ignore. And yes, once you put your attention to one, you’d totally look for others. It’s like being put on a spell. And yes, that spell is the reason why we want to feature them Russian models in a listicle. Now, some of them we’ve already featured, and the rest, you’d soon get to know more.
So let’s start, shall we? Oh, and it’s not just models in here…
