Perhaps, it is 
NesvizhNiasviž (BelarusianНясві́ж [nʲaˈsʲvʲiʐ]LithuanianNesvyžiusPolishNieświeżRussianНе́свижYiddishניעסוויזLatinNesvisium) is a city in Belarus. It is the administrative centre of the Nyasvizh District (rajon) of Minsk Region and site of Niasviž Castle, a World Heritage Site. Its 2009 population is 14,300

Also, Russki could be Ruski = Russian and Pilski a misspelling of Polski = Polish, denoting perhaps dual national origin, as the area was a Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth before being occupied by the Russian Empire.
