Basically but try to know a few phrases it would help a lot. Russia is not dangerous or scary it is pretty safe and a lot more safe than it was in the 1990's. Problem is Russia's reputation from the 90's is still stuck in many westerners minds. Completely different country, it has been transformed in the last 10 years although work still needs to be done(that is for a different thread).

The people are more welcoming in cities like Ufa than say Moscow, you should find it to be an interesting experience

Don't expect to see a lot of this
