Thanks for the explanation!
Do you think it is possible that Sushko or Sushka was also a personal name in Russia (besides in many other slavic countries) and it was maybe used as short for the name Francis?
I got this idea by searching on the internet - for example I found out that Suske is short for Francis in flemish - and then it seems that last names containing the root Sushk- are widespread in many slavic countries (for example Suska, Suskic, Suskovic, Suszka, Suszko, etc) - the name Francis has been widespread in Europe throughout the centuries.
