Now that I’ve finally been able to watch Sampo unriffed, here’s my ranking of the Russo-Finnish flicks from MST3K. (Technically Sampo/Day the Earth Froze is the only one that was actually Russo-Finnish, but whatever.)
UNRIFFED:
Ilya Muromets/The Sword and the Dragon
Sampo/Day the Earth Froze
Sadko/Magic Voyage of Sinbad
Jack Frost

And for the heck of it, here’s my ranking of the MST3K episodes!
