Paok,

Thank you for adding Dr. Zhivago and Lara.

You may also wish to explicitly limit your poll to Russian characters that appear in non-Russian productions. Otherwise, you there are literally thousands of Russian characters. Nikolay should be able to provide proper guidance on this matter.

Xenia Onatopp is Georgian, not Russian.
And speaking of which, if I don't say it, I'm sure Nikolay Yeriomin will, when he sees this list. You need to clearly define the term ''Russian''. What I want to say is, do you count all Soviets as ''Russian'', or only Russian Soviets are fit for your list?

mihailo.razvigor, it's a tough subject: technically Xenia Onatopp is Georgian in the movie, but it could've been an invented nationality, as well: even name is a hodege-podge with a non-existent patronimic (English speakers really don't get "otchestvo" concept at times).

Ivan Danko could be technically perceived as Ukrainian, but within the concept of the movie he is Soviet. To a point that it is what he answers, exactly, when asked whether he is Russian.

Nikolay, was not Xenia in the Russian Army and a KGB Agent?

She was in the SOVIET army (not KGB, though), but after the Soviet Union collapsed, she became a terrorist.
That's why I suggested for a clear distinction to be made whether non-Russian Soviet characters are eligible for this list.
Either way, Xenia does not belong on it, since the movie GoldenEye is set in the 1990s Russia, after the downfall of USSR. Therefore, she is neither Russian nor Soviet.

Ed,

Technically, Boris Badenov, Natasha Fatale and Fearless Leader are not Russians. They are citizens of the fictional country of Pottsylvania,
