How do Russian female friendships differ from American female friendships?

I'm doing some research on Russian female friendships, and found some anecdotal evidence that because Russian women vastly outnumber good Russian men, the race to try and attract a good mate has made Russian women extremely competitive. From those who know Russian culture -- is this true? How does competition impact female bonding? And is there a notion of "girlfriend bonding" or "sisterhood" that exists in American culture?
Anyone who has some knowledge of Russian culture and can answer this, it would be much appreciated!
