Abandonware DOS title

Games set in Russia or in the Soviet Union

Many of the abandoned old PC games set in Russia (or the Soviet Union, which the less young of you probably still remember) are strategy games focused on simulated tactical combat: war games, combat flight simulators, etc. The few exceptions still involve some sort of conflict (Crisis at the Kremlin and The Cardinal of the Kremlin, for example). The most popular russian game though, is Tetris, which sadly is not set in the Soviet Union because... well... it's an abstract puzzle game.
