No. So don't ask so useless questions.
(Нет. Поэтому не задавай такие глупые вопросы.)

Ололо, ты хуй, мать твоя шлюха, а отец членодевка. Русский рак - самый лучший рак в мире!

Nordic = Scandinavia (including Finland and Iceland)

These are Germanic languages (like English), with the exception of Finnish of course. (which is not related at all) (and neither is Russian)

Allow me to sort this out:

The Nordic languages include Norweigian, Swedish, Danish, Faroese and Icelandic. Those are all germanic languages. (indoeuropean family)

If you want to include Finnish, which belongs to the altaic language family (not the indoeuropean family), You would probably have to say scandinavic languages. (Maybe you'll have to include estonian in this case).

Russian is neither a nordic or scandinavic language but a slavic language (which still belongs to the indoeuropean language falimy).

So Russian is more closely related to Swedish, Norweigian, Danish, Faroese and Icelandic (all being indoeuropean languages) than to Finnish, but is still not a Scandinavian language though Finnish is.

Finnish (and its close cousin Estonian) isn't in the Altaic family, but the Uralic family (aka Finno-Ugric). "Altaic" covers Turkic, Mongolian, Tungus-Manchu, Korean and Japanese.

For a long time it was thought Uralic and Altaic were related, so there's a lot of confusion about this. In latest thinking it's an open question if Uralic is related to Altaic, Indo-European, or either at all.
