In photo #5 what's the difference between this "St. Nicholas" and Deed Moroz? Yellow because Soviet's use blue and America uses red?

When the real Bishop Nicholas of Myra was striped of his office by the emperor for defending truth Christ visited St. Nicholas in prison to present him with a book of gospels. Blessed Mother Mary gave this political prisoner the symble of his orthodox episcopate, the omorphorion.

Isn't it time Ukraine's Saint Nicholas shed Stalin's russafication? You want Deed Moroz wait for the Gregorian January 1.
