Now only matches against Bulgaria and India are considered full A-internationals for Russia. Soviet FA wanted to include the match against Poland into the list and asked Polish FA about it. Polish FA had no objection if this match would be included together with three matches played in 1969 and 1970 by the Olympic sides (USR-POL 0-4, POL-USR 0-1, USR-POL 1-2). Soviet FA had refused this suggestion.
So, sometimes it is possible to ask the opponent's FA about the match status.

31-08-1969. Moscow. USSR League XI - Poland League XI - 0:0
23-04-1970. Moscow. USSR League XI - Poland League XI - 0:2
The 1970 match was played on the next day after the Vladimir Lenin's 100th Anniversary (Lenin was born on 22-04-1870) and IT WAS LOST. The defeat on the Lenin Stadium during the Lenin's Anniversary was the very, very serious reason to refuse the Polish suggestion.
This implies that if one of these countries wants to regard the matches USSR played in the 1952-1955 era against Poland, Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania, Finland, Czechoslovakia and Egypt as official A-internationals, these matches will be official A.

No need to repost it everywhere. The same "rule" could work for every single football match ever played.

Russian websites give
17-9-53 Dinamo Moskva 3-1 Romania
22-9-53 Dinamo Tbilisi 1-2 Romania
26-9-53 Zenit Leningrad 2-2 Romania
30-9-53 Spartak Moskva 1-2 Romania

I can't say whether that is complete, but it seems likely to me that the Bulletin mistook the first match ?
