If that's what Alexander II thought then he was wrong since he himself was not 100% of Russian descent.

Noble Consort Ming, You are correct that Alexander II was not 100% of Russian descent.
Alexander II's mother Alexandra Fyodorovna was originally Charlotte of Prussia.

A great-grandson of Russia’s Tsar Alexander III has died in a small town in outback Australia but his remains were left in a morgue for two months because authorities were unaware of his identity.

Leonid Kulikovsky, 72, a distant relative of both the Queen and Prince Philip, died while walking his dog at a caravan park on September 27 in Katherine, a remote town in the Northern Territory, where he lived alone.

A member of Russia’s exiled Romanov family, he was the son of Guriy, whose mother was Grand Princess Olga, the youngest daughter of Emperor Alexander III, Russia’s penultimate Tsar.
