Am i too dark to visit russia? Picture

Hello I am a 26 yr old female student who will be attending a six week program in Moscow. I'm a little nervous because I'm not fully white. Should I cancel? I'm willing to send a picture!
For reference I'm Italian mixed with Lithuanian I look all Italian, and have dark curly hair dark eyes olive skin what do you think?

What exactly do you think Russians look like? And considering the various countries that used to be part of the Soviet Union, why do you think that?

(If this is not a troll) - In Russia there are a lot of people with much darker skin than you.

Well because, a quick Google Search showed people who looked like me called "gypsies" being stabbed by Russian skin heads. I'm scared because I look somewhat similar to them.

You have absolutely nothing to worry about! A lot of russians are darker than you. And skin heads movement is not poplular here
