Ok... Is it five volumes? Some editions seem to have five volumes, some only one...
Whoever wishes to foresee the future must consult the past; for human events ever resemble those of preceding times. This arises from the fact that they are produced by men who ever have been, and ever shall be, animated by the same passions, and thus they necessarily have the same results.

Hello and welcome Czar! I'm a fan of Russian HF and non-fiction too, I've read fairly recently 'The Kitchen Boy' by Robert Alexander and 'Snow Mountain' by Catherine Gavin on the last Czar Nicholas II and his family, which I very much enjoyed. There's also a series by Evelyn Anthony on Catherine the Great, not sure if it's two books or three.

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Hello and welcome! If the Viking Rus kingdoms count as Russian history, The Whale Road by Robert Low is about a group of 10th-century Norse mercenaries on a quest that takes them to Russia and the Ukraine.

This author writes about the later Romanov period. A very good historical mystery series.
