Russophobia: The Fear of Russians

Russophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of Russians.  This could stem from an extreme dislike or hatred or it could be a genuine fear.
A phobia is a strong, persistent fear of situations, objects, activities or persons.  The main symptom is an excessive and unreasonable desire to avoid the feared subject. Other phobia symptoms include shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, sweating, nausea, and an overall feeling of dread.  Phobias are the most common form of anxiety disorders.
