European style? Rather American style from 20.-30. years last century. Russians copied Your (I mean Amercians) architecture from 20.-30. years, but they did it in 50. years last century. For example Warsaw's Palace of Culture and Science or Moscow's Lomonosow University, both from 50. years last century are copies Your architecture.
