The Russian Federation is the legal continuator of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic (RSFSR), in which it declared state sovereignty from the Soviet Union in 1991.
It borders the country of Chernarus to the north, around the Black Mountains area. Russia also borders Takistan west of Lake Beloe. The detached Kaliningrad Oblast is bordered by Poland, Livonia and Lithuania.
In DayZ, Russia is inaccessible and does not appear in game. However there is one road sign referencing the capital city of Moscow, and following the directions northward into the Debug Plains would eventually lead to the Russian border, however the map is only limited to Chernarus.
It is likely that multiple weapons, ammunition, clothing and vehicles originated from Russia and were exported into Chernarus, or were brought into the country during the infection aftermath.
There a few direct references to Russia that are found throughout DayZ. The Russian Learning book has the borders of Russia with the Russian tri-color flag and the Russian Cheat Sheet book has a picture of Saint Basil's Cathedral in Moscow. The BK-18 rifle has the words "Made in Russia" inscribed on the side of the file.
