It's odd that Rust is a related name for Russ, but it doesn't show Russ as an alternate for Rust.

Those lists are generated from data at http://www.werelate.org/wiki/Special:Names

I just added "Russ" as an alternate for "Rust" on that website (the easiest way to find the URL was to visit the site). The change won't propagate quickly to Wikitree (depends on when the staff gets around to downloading a new data set).

In my Russ family, which I would think is yours also, Russ is a spin off by a member of a Rust Family.  One brother out of several changed his last name to Russ while all his brothers kept Rust.
