Endings of stories that aren't happy. Usually used in reference to cinema. In contrast American films are notorious for their happy endings.
Friend 1: I heard you saw that movie Weekend. What did you think?

Friend 2: I did see it. I wasn't happy with the Russian Ending.

Friend 1: I didn't mind the ending. I found it realistic. American's only want happy endings in their movies.

Get the Russian Ending mug.
When driving along in the left lane of a two lane street, most likely Coney Island Avenue in Brooklyn, a pre-owned 5 series BMW cuts you off while a black 2001 Nissan Maxima stays steady to your right. The BMW then suddenly stops short, and because the Maxima is blocking you from swerving into the right lane, you rear end the BMW in front of you, which was all part of their plan. Passengers in the BMW all claim neck and back injuries and collect tens of thousands of dollars from insurance companies, largely in part to testimony from crooked Brighton Beach Orthopedists.
Oren was driving down Coney Island Avenue on his way home to Manhattan Beach. Suddenly, a black BMW cut him off, while a bronze Maxima pulled up to his right. Before he could realize what was going on, the BMW stopped short, causing him to plow into it. The driver and all 4 passengers of the BMW exited the car holding their necks and backs in pain, claiming to be severely injured; except the only injury here was done to Oren, the unsuspecting victim of Russian rear end.
