In Russian chess queen is not replaced with amazon: amazon comes after promotion of king's pawn (other pawns promotes to pieces, wich was adjecent to them in beggining). Amazon in Russian chess is called Helgi (i don't know, what it means). King there is called Magus (or soothsayer, i don't know, wich translation os more proper) and queen is prince (or duke).
