    Не плюй в колодец, пригодится водицы, напиться.

    I may be (and pretty sure I am) wrong about this, but can't it mean something like "Russian-style", or be used as an adjective.

    Is "Рождество на Руси" "Christmas Russian-style", or "Russian Christmas".

    Just a thought

    It’s easy to make such mistake because “на Руси” on a regular basis used with “обычай” – custom (tradition) and the like. For example:
    Есть обычай на Руси
    Ночью слушать BBC.
    custom in Russia or custom Russian-style means essentially the same

    thanks, i knew that it means "в России" but it kinda seemed to me that "на Руси" means "on the older russian way", that's probably "Russian style" as u said...

    "Раньше на Руси черта называли Мурин"

    or

    "Кому на Руси Жить хорошо"

    I think in English it is perfectly acceptable to say "Rus", at least among people who know what it means... "those who live in Rus" etc.

    Рас, as in Russ (the name). Pacman is something different,
