To an extent...but plenty of long noses too. Their national relatives from Bulgaria beat them.

Indeed! Equally absurd is writing off entire groups of (your preferred gender) as "unattractive" all because of some stupid, racist media stereotype!

I think a lot of the difference comes down to makeup, hairstyle, dress, behaviour.etc. I don't think British women are that ugly, for instance, and I think Russian men are not seen as hot primarily because they're stereotyped as being drunks or abusive and Russian women overshadow them. Japanese men are not on the same level as Japanese women because women don't have an Asian fetish (well it's not as common) compared to the men, although that could be changing. I've noticed the younger generation have a bit more of a thing for Japanese men due to pop culture.
I think it's a bit more complex than that. While it's true that men and women tend to look similar in any given country (they share the same genes and diet afterall). There are other forces at play.

Some countries have smaller/more petite and more youthful looking people (Japan being a great example). In such a case, most people will find the women prettier compared to the men, the reason being is the traits listed are what's valued (across most cultures anyway) for women than for men.

Likewise if a country has more masculine traits - larger body sizes, more rugged etc - then people will tend to find the men more attractive.

There is also some individual cultural elements where the men and women of a given culture may work harder to stay in shape. This may be related to gender imbalances. In Russia, they have a shortage of men, and so the women have to try extra hard to be noticed.
