Explanation: "Oh my gosh" is a way of avoiding the word "God," which at one time was considered improper to use in everyday speech (it has nothing to do with Russian- they obviously picked it up from English speakers).
So, too, "elokim" is a way of avoiding saying "elohim," which is considered a name of God. "Elohim adirim" is a common Hebrew interjection meaning "dear God!" No one says "elokim adirim," but I hereby introduce it into the language.
