Culturally, I associate Catholicism with a crucifix which depicts Jesus' human form in a high level of detail including bloody wounds and musculature, and I associate Protestantism with a plain "Latin" cross. FWIW, I recommend you should get a blessed St Benedict Medal Crucifix to protect your home from demons.
I do have 2 St. Benedict Crucifixes in my house. One above our bed that we bought at the Vatican in 2011. One above the front door of our house. Neither are blessed, but I did have the whole house blessed when we first bought it. Is that enough? Or is that the same as consecrating the whole world but not specifically Russia?

Blessing of your home is extraordinarily wonderful. Good for you. Now, follow through and find a holy priest who will do the Benedictine Blessings on your extraordinary and beautiful Crucifixes!
