Russia, also known as the Russian Federation and previously the administrative state of the former Soviet Union, is a country with land in Eurasia. It was first referenced in the Season One episode, "Pinkeye", but first appeared in the Season Nineteen episode, "PC Principal Final Justice".


Russians first appeared in "Pinkeye", where the late Soviet space station MIR crushed and killed Kenny thanks to the arguments of two cosmonauts on board.

In "Marjorine", Eric Cartman destroys 'the Device' so it doesn't fall into the hands of the girls, the CIA, terrorists, and Russians.

In "Free Willzyx", the boys call the Russian Space Program to send Willzyx to the moon but later think it's another phone prank by George Bush. In this episode, the boys refer to Russia as a third-world country.

In "The Snuke", the United Kingdom hires Russian terrorists to try and mislead the Americans, so they can ultimately invade America and regain control of it.

A military adviser at the Pentagon admitted to the United States using the "Imaginationland" portal against the Russians in the Cold War.

In "Insheeption", Freddy Krueger mentions having killed teenagers to stop the Russians, a reference to the A Nightmare on Elm Street films Freddy comes from, in which he kills teenagers.

In "PC Principal Final Justice", PC Principal visits Russia and stops at a local bar to confront the locals.

In "Members Only", Sergej Tchaivokak says "В danishes планируют тролль нас вы должны сделать что-то быстро" (Translation: The danishes are planning to troll us you must do something quick) in Russian language and Vladimir Putin says "Итак, это те, кто сделал это?" (Translation: So these are the ones who did that?) This section is entirely spoken in Russian.

In "Franchise Prequel", Stephen drags Butters to Russia in order to punish both him and Vladimir Putin for giving him an idea of fake news and grounds both of them.

In "Back To The Cold War", news of NORAD raising their threat level to DEFCON 3 reaches the Kremlin. The Russian authorities attempt to relay the news to Putin, only to find the latter shirtless dancing to the tune of "Two Tribes". They are later seen watching a dressage competition where Butters emerge victorious, and listens to a speech by Mr. Mackey.


  • In late 2008, a group of prosecutors in Moscow, on behalf of Muslim activists and members of the Russian Pentecostalist Church, sought to have the Russian channel 2×2 closed in an attempt to prevent them from broadcasting the series, which they claimed promoted hatred between religions after showing "Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics" along with that of The Simpsons and Family Guy. But their appeal was rejected by the Russian state federal court. As a result, the Russian channel 2×2 was allowed to keep its license by agreeing not to re-air the program again.[1] Despite that, the Russian punk-rock band Sloat released the song "Oни Убили Кенни" (Russian: They killed Kenny) in 2006. The video for this song uses clips from episodes where Kenny continually died.
