I don't consider the "Russian Empire" as a multicultural society. I don't Consider the "Hapsburg Austrian Empire" a multicultural society either

Multicultural =/= other peoples invaded by 1 dominant group

Multicultural = Many groups irrespective of ethnicity living together in a fair and unbiased society

You are thinking of Empire...

Russian Empire = Fins,Lithuanians,Latvians,Estonians,Tatars,Poles,Ukrainians,Belarus under Russian rule

Polish-Lithuanian - Ukrainians,Belarus, Jews, Gypsies, Latvians, Tatars, under Polish Rule

Empire =/= Multicultural
