Territories occupied in Thrace were occupied during the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-1878, while most of the eastern parts of Turkey come from areas occupied by Russia during World War I.

Djibouti was never an official settlement by the Russian Empire, just a bunch of Russian settlers trying to establish a colony independently of russia, the Russian empire even denounced them to France, don't get why you put it as an colony since the Russian Empire officially had nothing to do with it.
