I'm not sure what articles you've been reading or what names are used for Russian hamsters in your country but here in the UK the term Imperial isn't used to my knowledge, no WW are extinct as far as I know unless you're referring to pet shop hamsters & the fact that WW & Campbells aren't available in pet shops, only the hybrids? Sorry if I'm a bit confused by your question!
The normal colour is called agouti here.

Winter White Genetics

"Also, the imperial gene is homozygous lethal. No defective babies are actually born, though. Any babies which would have received two imperial genes (one from each parent or about 25% of the litter) will die in the womb and not be born. This is not generally considered a problem since it is believed that this may actually aid the mother both by decreasing the litter size and by giving her added protein and nutrition during pregnancy. Update: The imperial winter white gene mutation is now believed extinct."

Ajq, all three of your hammies are gorgeous. Congrats on giving them their forever, loving home. Have fun with them, and please share updates and pics whenever you have a chance. I would love to get to know them all better and hear about all of their wonderful adventures.

That was all extremely interesting Hekomi. Thanks for making it clear to us. I'm glad that I learn something new everyday.
