In the Indexes to volumes I,II, and III of DARE there are only 9 items
under the heading "Russian" (meaning that the term "Russian" is used
somewhere in the head section of the entry).  The headwords are babushka,
banya, barabara, bidar, borsch, chy, kielbasa, moroshka, and nushnik.  That
suggests that the influence of Russian on American (regional) English is
rather limited.
