No, I live in Europe. And it's the same for most cities of such size in Europe: Malmo (13-15k arena), Tallinn (7-10k arena), Zurich (11-13k arena), Geneva is a smaller city and their arena is 100 years old - still has a seating capacity of 7,3k, same with Basel, Bern is a small town by comparison and they still have arena with 17k capacity, Sweden is full of tiny towns with 6k arenas.. I do understand these are "bigger profile" cities compared to Saransk but considering its population it wouldn't make sense to build a smaller than 7-8k arena in this day and age.

Not sure at all if that's true. In Croatia - maybe.
