Sergeyev's version, if I remember rightly -- haven't looked this up recently -- comes fom hte version ("The Sleeping Princess")that Diaghilev did for London, and for that version Lopukhov made some additions (or was it Nijinska?) -- including I believe the fish (which indeed, hte Russians no longer do, but use instead usually a multiple inside turn and a swoon in sous-sus).
In the variation itself the Russians nowadays do less of hte Russian dance (the section with the corkscrewing wrists), but break it up with a couple of soutenus or something. I myself would love t o know how much of THAT is petipa, and who konw, and how they know for sure....
