Then there are tall, furry hats, the CossackDance, [[strike:borscht]] borsch, 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 Saint Basil's Cathedral]] 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.)

* Comrades, how could we forget the ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlertSeries''? In ''[[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert Red Alert 1]]'', the Soviets are basically realistic, as part of the game's "WhatIf UsefulNotes/WorldWarII had been fought between the Allies and Stalin?" premise. In ''[[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert2 Red Alert 2]]'', they start picking up some... oddities, like PoweredArmor with {{Lightning Gun}}s, giant squid as naval units, military structures based upon Orthodox churches, and a mind-controlling Rasputin {{Expy}}, with a [[TsaristRussia Tsar from the Romanov family]] to rule them all. In ''[[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert3 Red Alert 3]]'', they go completely off the rails with units like [[BearsAreBadNews War Bears]], [[TankGoodness tanks equipped with tractor beams that grind up enemy vehicles]], and [[AwesomePersonnelCarrier APCs that shoot infantry out of a giant cannon]], all led by Creator/TimCurry.

* 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.

* 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.
