Fenwickfield if you look closely you can see it has the remains of a nice cortina round the top of the stem and hints of brown spores so can't be a russula.

I should have looked more closely as I can now see it so have agreed on your ID.

I don´t know whether it has

I don´t know whether it has been reported from Russia, but there are verified findings from Estonia a few hundred kilometers from the location indicated here. The species is widely distributed throughout Europe, so it seems likely for it to occur in Russia as well. C. balteatocumatilis as fairly easy to identify from the robust fruitbodies and pale gills contrasting the violaceous cap. Resembling species have more or less bluish/violaceous colors on the gills as well (variecolor/nemorensis/largus group).
