They are really beautiful but also very unoriginal. At least some Russian influence would have been nice instead of bare copies.

Wow. For some reason, Russians seem to have a particular affinity to architecture of Belgium / Northern France.

Russia was always a multinational country. Traditionally, in the epoch of the Russian Empire people from different European regions came on the permanent settlement. For this reason, the country is tolerant to different national practices in architecture. In addition to the examples cited previously, there are many modern designs of the traditional Russian styles.
Besides Russian architecture is the European architecture, with some regional peculiarities. The main feature of Russian traditional village house is that it often built of wood.

Those Russian houses and their neighborhoods look like American McMansions and typical upscale American suburbia. The US is full of subdivisions like that. I'm tired of them so it is sad for me to see them pop up in other countries, but I guess they are "ergonomic" to families, thus appealing.

I swear, there's probably more traditional revival, than traditional Architecture in Moscow these days.

Awful. Looks like a 1950s dollhouse. No, even worse.

This house is located in the depth of old Moscow lanes in the historical part of the city and looks quite naturally in the environment. It is not worse than the number shown here. I don't set goals show here cutting-edge avant-garde buildings, which are many in Moscow, but which do not meet the given theme "Traditional Architecture Style".

No it does not look naturaly at all, the environment doesnt matter. Its just one of the many kitchy fails that use oversizes out of scale elements of historism and combines is reklessly with glass facades...

Same with this "belgian village" which is in fact just that ordenary US-stile suburb architekture an has nothing to do with belgian stiles, nore traditional architecture

Well. Most importantly, it's not hi-tech or any avant-garde, which many people may not take as housing. This building is not forced upon anyone, because hidden in the labyrinth of the old town. At least it's better than shown here pathetic attempts to revive the art Deco style.
About the village, I am also against the names of the "Belgian". So was the idea of the developers for a good selling houses. Let's consider it as a "Russian village". Its architecture is not contrary to the Russian tradition.

Seems that around 90% is crap though. I have circled some of the problems:
