    Nice verb, ha ha...

    The face becomes crooked, wry, lop-sided. It turns into a grimace.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Перекособочиться = перекоситься = to distort. It's from "косой бок" = "askew side". Expressive and not quite literary word.
    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?
