'''[[Russkaya Station]]''' is a former Soviet and Russian [[Antarctica|Antarctic]] research station that was located on the [[Ruppert Coast]], in [[Westarctica]]. The station was proposed in 1973 and approved in 1978.  Construction began the next year and it was opened on 9 March 1980 and officially abandoned after the fall of the Soviet Union in 1990. The station was mothballed in the beginning of 1990, being closed in such a way that it could be re-opened with minimal effort.
