* 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.

* ''VideoGame/RiseOfTheReds'' is a ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerGenerals'' mod centered upon the inclusion of a Russian faction, later merged with the Shockwave mod and another mod about an Not-European-Union faction, with a backstory set after the events of ''Zero Hour'' expansion. The Russian faction in question is clearly based upon the ''Red Alert'' series yet ''somewhat'' grounded in reality, with less crazy tech, more realistically questionable morality thanks to a gas-masked mad scientist trusted to lead the invasion force, and the same cheesy stereotypes, complete with Polyushko Pole playing in the main menu. And they are noticeably more transparent social-democrats rather than communist, ultranationalist, or whatever ideology suits Hollywood's depiction of Russians which the developers decry as cliche.
