Jereon Krabbe often didn't even bother with the accent, making his request for a "detachment of men and some trucks" in Afghanistan sound rather hilarious compared to his usual voice.
Necros's default accent appears to be this. Although he adopts it when taking Koskov from the safehouse to make it appear like the KGB was responsible, he also talks that way when conferring with Koskov and Whitaker later, when he would have no need to pretend to be someone else. The actor, Andreas Wisniewski, is German, and his voice is dubbed over by Kerry Shale, a Canadian VA.
Although more of a case of Fake Czechslovakian, English Maryam D'Abo as Kara Milovy (although D'Abo is of Georgian descent).
Milestone Celebration: The film was released in 1987, the 25th anniversary of the James Bond film series.
Two short-lived replacements arrive in this film - Timothy Dalton as Bond, and Caroline Bliss as Moneypenny.
Also John Terry, who briefly shows up as Felix Leiter, becoming the sixth (seventh if you include Never Say Never Again) actor in the role.
Real Life Writes the Plot: Bond was meant to be after General Gogol, the recurring KGB head played by Walter Gotell in every Bond movie since The Spy Who Loved Me. However, Gotell was ill at the time, and thus, unable to commit to the film. So it was written that General Pushkin became head of the KGB as Gogol became a diplomat. By the time Gotell was well enough, he essentially makes a cameo as Gogol in the end.
Pierce Brosnan was set to play Bond, and even screen-tested for the part, after the cancellation of Remington Steele (Dalton had been approached to take over the role in A View To A Kill, but Moore decided to play the role once again. When he was approached for this film, he was unavailable as he was filming Brenda Starr). However, the publicity from the casting caused the ratings of Remington Steele to rise - which caused NBC to uncancel the show at (literally) the last possible second. The producers, not wanting to cast an actor who was appearing in a TV show at the same time (Albert R. Broccoli was quoted as saying, "Remington Steele will not be James Bond"), revoked the offer to Brosnan and cast Dalton after sorting out his conflict (Broccoli had wanted Dalton to play Bond for years, as far back as 1969's On Her Majesty's Secret Service only for Dalton himself to politely decline at the time as he felt himself to be too young and felt intimidated by the idea of following in the footsteps of Sean Connery). The worst part - with Brosnan no longer playing Bond, the ratings for the revived Remington Steele tanked and the show was cancelled again. Brosnan would finally get to be Bond in 1995's GoldenEye.
Sam Neill was also considered and even screen-tested for the part.
Recurring character General Gogol was originally going to fill the role that Pushkin plays in the final film, but his actor Walter Gotell was too ill to play the part, so Gogol was replaced by the new character Pushkin.
