Similar language, the same religion but definitely completely different origin.

Stay away.

Re: Do Bulgarians and Russians consider themselves similar?

Ukrainians, Belarusians are much closer to Russians, almost identical. During the Soviet Union era the borders were closed and it was impossible for people to travel and integrate the way it's in EU now. Maybe we are similar, but in the real life only a few that had a chance to communicate can tell.

I don't recall any Russian tennis player failing a doping test when she was 15, and then saying that it was really just because she'd recently been pregnant.

What is that supposed to mean? I've never heard of them being "grouped" as identical.
