* In ''Film/IndependenceDay'', something that [[http://s43.radikal.ru/i100/1008/55/4007ea74c187.jpg appears to be a Russian weather forecast]] features the nonsensical text "Tucha fznamznon" (maybe they were going for "cloud phenomenon"), and the map shown is the map of... the Soviet Union. In 1997. The three city labels on the map are "Moskva" (correct Russian name of UsefulNotes/{{Moscow}}), "Petrograd" (the name of [[TheCityFormerlyKnownAs St. Petersburg]] between 1914 and 1924), and "Novosyoyrsk" (apparently supposed to be Novosibirsk). To add insult to injury, the locations of Moscow and Novosibirsk on the map [[ArtisticLicenseGeography are completely off]].

* First trailer to ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare3'', America, featured extremely bad Russian: "Odin. Unichtozhit' vrazhnuyu nadezhdu na pobezdenie!". Some of the forms of the words used do not exist in Russian: "vraznuyu" should be "vrazheskuyu", "enemy's", and "pobezhdenie" should be "pobedu" to get "One. Destroy enemy's hope for victory." The rest were fine, though, even accent was not very heavy.

Also, when someone is addressed this way, you should use "Pervyj", "first", instead of "Odin": Russians use ordinal numbers instead of cardinal in such cases. The rest were fine, though, even accent was not very heavy.



*** In military tradition second toast is for women, but the third toast is for fallen comrades, standing, not touching glasses and observing a moment of silence before.



* There are also funny [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar or outright obscene]] Russian writings all over the Red Alert series. One of the books in Stalin's study is labeled "БРЭТ ЖОПА" (lit. Brett Ass). The Tesla armor is labeled "БИТЧ" ("Bitch", in English but written in Cyrillic letters).

** This may pretty much be zig-zagged, though, since Dashka doesn't seem to be [[EmbarrassingFirstName a masculine name]] ''[[EmbarrassingFirstName at all]]'', but rather a milder form of a feminine "Darya".

UsefulNotes/{{Russia}} is a big place. There are many people living in it and its neighboring countries, especially the ones that were once parts of the [[UsefulNotes/SovietRussiaUkraineAndSoOn Union of Soviet Socialist Republics]]. Consequentially, there are a lot of people on the planet (quarter billion, according to Wiki/TheOtherWiki) who can speak RussianLanguage to some extent. It's no surprise then, that non-Russian authors love to put snippets of Russian speech into their characters' mouths, especially if said characters come from UsefulNotes/TsaristRussia (in {{Period Piece}}s), the Soviet Union (during the UsefulNotes/ColdWar era), or TheNewRussia.

* ''AceCombatAssaultHorizon'' is choke-full with GratuitousRussian, bordering on BilingualBonus. Particularly notable is a dialogue scene late in the game that reveals the BigBad's motivations and is voiced ''completely'' in Russian (with English subtitles).

* ''Senkou no Night Raid'' averted this: one of the characters, an native Russian violinist, were speaking in ''perfectly'' accented Russian, strange enough for a non-Russian work. His lines had some questionable moments, but most of them sounded appropriately.
