A map of Russia, showing the extent of its territories

Russia is Earth's largest country, and spans from Eastern Europe, to the Bering Sea near Japan and Alaska in the United States of America. From 1922 to 1991, it was the central country of the Soviet Union, which controlled much of Eastern Europe and Northern Asia. Russia is either referenced or appears in several of Toho's and other giant monster movies.


Showa era


Russia itself doesn't appear directly, but rather is combined with the USA to create the fictional country of Rolisica, which shares aspects of both countries. Mothra travels to Rolisica to attack New Kirk City and retrieve her twin Shobijin fairies.

King Kong vs. Godzilla

In the American version of King Kong vs. Godzilla, the United States, United Kingdom, and Soviet Union all offer troops and weapons to Japan to help the country repel Godzilla.

Destroy All Monsters

After the Kilaaks attacked Monsterland and took control of the monsters, they unleashed Rodan to attack the Russian capital city of Moscow. Later he flies over the Ural Mountains, by east of Moscow.

Heisei era

The Return of Godzilla

Set in the closing years of the Cold War, the Soviet Union sends the Balashevo, piloted by Kashirin, to Tokyo to liaise with the Americans and Japanese in the midst of a nuclear crisis. The Soviet ambassador, when meeting with the Japanese prime minister, fears that after Japan, Vladivostok will become the next target of Godzilla. When Godzilla submerges himself, the Balashevo is damaged, causing its controls to the Soviet Nuclear Attack Satellite to become damaged, ultimately resulting in a nuclear missile being launched directly at Tokyo. In the American version of the film, titled Godzilla 1985, the Soviets are portrayed as deliberately shooting the missile at the city, most likely to give the Americans a more heroic image when they destroy the missile by shooting one of their own rockets at it.

Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah

After returning to 2204 with M11, Emmy Kano locates the body of King Ghidorah in the Sea of Okhotsk, which lies just above Japan, and is in Russian territory. It is also revealed that the Godzillasaurus that the Futurians placed in the Bering Sea was exposed to radiation released from a Russian submarine crash in the 1970s, transforming it into Godzilla.

Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II

Adonoa Island, the island where Rodan and BabyGodzilla were discovered, is located in the Bering Sea between Alaska and Russia, and is said to have been a dumping site for Russian nuclear waste and more recently was visited by Russian petroleum drillers.



According to Ishiro Serizawa and Vivienne Graham, when Godzilla was awakened by an American nuclear submarine in the 1950s, he attacked and fed on several American and Russian ships. The Americans and Russians both initially believed that the other nation was responsible for the attacks, but eventually discovered Godzilla's existence. In the present day, the male MUTO grabbed a Russian nuclear submarine of the 941 Akula project from the ocean and dredged it onto land in Hawaii, where he fed on its nuclear torpedoes.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Monarch marks in Russian territory

Amhuluk was sleeping at Manpupuner rock formations in Russia, with Monarch building Outpost 66 around it. After Ghidorah caused a mass awakening of the Titans with his call, Admiral William Stenz reported that Moscow, along with other major cities, had been attacked by the Titans. A Cold War-era map showed that Monarch had built several bunkers within the Soviet Union.


  • In Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah (1991), time traveler Emmy Kano suggests that the Soviet Union still exists in 2204. In reality, the country's dissolution concluded on December 26, 1991, just 12 days after the film was released to Japanese theaters.
  • The Japanese saloon Godzilla destroys in Godzilla 2000: Millennium (1999) has a list of alcoholic drinks in Russian: cognac, vodka, beer, whiskey, and wine. A Russian phrase ("Не забудь меня", don't forget me) is also visible, located closer to the counter. This indicates that the saloon is often visited by Russians.
