Russia is a playable map in Unturned (version 3). The map was developed in collaboration with Justin "Gamez2much" Morton, Mitch "Sketches" Wheaton, Alex "Rainz2much" Stoyanov, and Amanda "Mooki2much" Hubler. It was released on August 19, 2016, as the first official large map. The collaborators can be supported by purchasing the Russia Map Mystery Box.
As opposed to the maps that came before it, Russia was designed with multiple different playstyles in mind. It is also the first official map to include NPCs, which can be found aboard the Liberator.
The map features locations from three of its European federal districts—Central, Northwest, and Volga—and two Asian federal districts—Ural and Siberia.

Thousands of years ago, several Slavic tribes unite to fracture a "soulcrystal", following a horrible incident. The tribes manage to succeed in fracturing the soulcrystal, and each tribe agrees to secretly encase a piece in stone such that no single person should ever know the location of all the fragments. One of the tribes buries their fragment in a tomb guarded by their spirit ancestor, Anastasia. This tribe will later record their history, and this event, through etchings along a hilltop stone monument. The most notable of these etchings is composed of runes representing nighttime, whispers, a harvest, and a soulcrystal.
A few months before the outbreak, Kilroy and his group of British museum curators decode the ancient tribal symbols found at the prehistoric stone monument between Keryev and St. Petersburg while pretending to be on holiday in Russia. While Kilroy is interested in finding the soulcrystal, they believe it to be only of superstitious or cultural importance.
On May 22, at 7:18 a.m., Flight 106 lands at Shereyavo International while on autopilot. The pilot fails to respond to the air traffic controller, so the ATC alerts ground crew to be on standby in case of an emergency. Nine minutes later, it is reported that the occupants were carrying an extremely fast-acting virus that begins to infect everyone in the area. Security moves in to intercept, while everyone else is evacuated to Moscow.
Pavel, the manager of the railway roundhouse at Vorkuta Junction, is woken from his slumber that same day by soldiers. The soldiers have him work the turntable so that they can retrieve a railway gun from World War II, nicknamed Ivan, to use in blowing up the train tunnels in their attempt to trap the infection in Russia. Radio contact is lost with the military squad at 10:25 a.m., although they had succeeded in blowing up the train tunnels. Due to the outbreak spreading the Russian military thin, the Russian godfather orders Artyom and his other mafiosi to capitalize on the chaos.
The President of Russia orders General Boris to launch a nuclear warhead at Moscow in an attempt to destroy the virus spreading through the country. General Boris rejects and burns the order, before cutting communication. Soon after, the Russian military launch an attack on Silo 22 in an attempt to forcefully launch the nuclear warhead. However, the missile was sabotaged by General Boris, causing the entire northern area to become irradiated.
After retreating out of Germany, the Liberator arrives in Russia, and Russia joins the Coalition.
General Roman is assigned by the Coalition to set up a forward operating base in Russia. After surveying the coastline, they choose to secure the oil rig and begin helping survivors. Scouts make the Coalition aware of the irradiated area to the north of Moscow, and reinforcements are called in to help the Coalition build a proper headquarters on the mainland. Several nuclear submarines begin to rendezvous at the oil rig.
A few minutes after one of the submarines dock, the coolant for the reactor runs low. The submarine's reactor overheats, and enters a nuclear meltdown. The oil rig and the surrounding area is irradiated before any survivors could be rescued, resulting in the death of most of the remaining military personnel, and leaving the Coalition with only their facilities already aboard the Liberator.
- It is based on the country of Russia, primarily focusing on the western part of Russia that is a part of Eastern Europe.
