I would say a cool side in the mid 70s with a basking area in the upper 80s to low 90s would be good for indoor housing. The tortoises may just be more active due to longer days of summer telling them time to be more active. If they are feeding well and active, then I would assume they are just fine with the 50W. Apparently russians aestivate if they become too hot.
