Well, without papers, you really can't prove they are Russians. They have cobra-like necks/heads, they are muscular. Their fur is short, double coated, really soft. The green eyes, mauve paws are two traits of a RB. They have mouths that appear to be smiling and their noses are black triangles. There is a page that describes the four-blue cat breeds.

Other than the papers, or knowing the breed of both parents, it's going to be considered a domestic short hair cat.

I couldn't post the link to the page I wanted to send you to. Google "Is My Cat a Russian Blue?" and you should find a link to the russianblue dot info site.
