"By the way, that data excludes results from the coldest parts of Russia." Global temperatures are not calculated as absolute measures but as anomalies--departures from a location's long-term average. So excluding "cold" areas would not necessarily lead to colder temperatures. In fact, the opposite is true. Global warming is most pronounced in the polar regions so excluding their data leads to a cooling bias.
