When a first lady visit Russia or an Eastern European country she does not wear a headdress and women there do not wear headdress, the elderly women may be but not the younger women.

My Grandfather and great grandmother were originally from the Russian Ukraine before emigrating to Germany only to flee Hitler. That is NOT a babushka.
