Differences Between British Shorthair and Russian Blue

I'd like to ask if there is any method to be sure that a cat is a Russian Blue or a British Shorthair. They look similar, both are lovely cats and I'd like to have a British Shorthair baby. My wife and I like this breed.

Got this information from fanciers.com:

British have gold or copper eyes. Russians have green eyes. British have a denser harsher coat, the Russian coat is thick but soft and tends to not be as dense. A British has a heavy semi-cobby body, fairly large and built for strength. A Russian is a lithe moderate cat, a smaller leaner build that is great for speed and quickness.
