* In ''VideoGame/{{X-COM}}'', Russia is the only country on Earth that ''never'' succumbs to alien infiltration, and will keep fighting the invaders until the end of the game.

Then there are tall, furry hats, the CossackDance, [[strike:borscht]] borshch, vodka (''[[VodkaDrunkenski lots]]'' [[VodkaDrunkenski of vodka]]), and everyone constantly being [[CrapsackWorld miserable]] and [[DeathWorld cold]], which is why they drink the vodka. These tropes seem permanently associated with the area. In recent years, [[SensualSlavs the Russian bride]] has started to turn up a lot. Chernobyl has also become very important in the outside world's views of the country, even though it is in Ukraine. [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/49/RedSquare_SaintBasile_%28pixinn.net%29.jpg This building]] will probably show up, too. No, it's [[IAmNotShazam not]] the [[SymbologyResearchFailure Kremlin]]. [[http://russiantraveling.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/001.jpg This is the Kremlin.]] [[note]]That church next door is the Cathedral of the Annunciation.[[/note]] (Image searches on "Kremlin" invariably turn up far more of the former building than the latter.)

* St. Basil's Cathedral, that church with those colorful onion domes, [[EiffelTowerEffect appearing whenever we see Moscow]], or in the case of {{Don Bluth}}'s 1997 animated film ''{{WesternAnimation/Anastasia}}'', [[CriticalResearchFailure it's located in]] [[TheCityFormerlyKnownAs Saint Petersburg]]. Often confused with the Kremlin.
** Actually, the building that is shown is a VERY stylized version of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_of_the_Savior_on_Blood The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood]], a building that does have a couple of similarities to St. Basil's Cathedral when it comes to design.

** In hindsight, the Space Marines in general bears some resemblance to the modern Spetsnaz, by their [[TrainingFromHell ridiculously brutal training]], [[RageHelm full-face helmets]] & [[http://warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/Bolter stubby-looking]] [[http://http://wikipedia.org/wiki/SR-3_Vikhr guns]], official policy of secrecy, and the fact that some of them served under the universe's resident StateSec not unlike their real-life counterpart.

** The Emperor himself was also partly based upon Vladimir Lenin, both were militant enforcers of atheism & materialism during their lives and later preserved & venerated in some sort of shrine, although the latter demands a fraction of rubles instead of psykers for his preservation. Also, the Emperor looks like Peter the Great, especially in [[https://1d4chan.org/wiki/File:646545.jpg one of his depiction outside his power armor]].
** And in a strange case of LifeImitatesArt, 2010's Russia unwittingly imitate the Cadians instead, from body armor design to [[MakeTheBearAngryAgain culture of militarism]] starting since childhood.
