Most volcanoes of Russia are part of the Ring of Fire in Kamchatka and the Kurile Islands. A few other volcanoes are intra-plate volcanoes, created by mantle plumes (hot spots).
Aluchin Group
(pyroclastic cone)
The Aluchin volcanic group is a cluster of 4 young cinder cones located in the Bilibino Region, in the Aluchin and Burgakhchan river basins in western Chukotka (Siberia). The cinder cones of Aluchin volcano could have erupted less than 10,000 years ago. [more]

Glaciers radiate from Mount Elbrus, the highest peak of the Caucasus Mountains of SW Russia. Snow-filled craters are visible in this image at both the 5595-m-high eastern summit and the 5633-m-high western summit. Image courtesy of Earth Sciences and Image Analysis Laboratory, NASA Johnson Space Center, 2002Elbrus volcano is a large stratovolcano in the western Caucasus of SW Russia. It is the highest mountain of Europe (although some argue that it belongs already to Asia) and the highest volcano of the northern hemisphere.
Elbrus has not erupted for about 2000 years, but is c... [more]

Oka Plateau
(cinder cones)
Oka Plateau volcano (also known as the East Sayan volcanic field) is a a group of small basaltic cinder cones and associated lava flows in SE Russia near the border with Mongolia, about 200 km west of Lake Baikal.
Eruptions occurred from several vents of the volcano, includ... [more]

(volcanic field)
Sikhote-Alin volcano is a vast cluster of basaltic fissure vents in the Sikhote-Alin region of SE Russia near the Sea of Japan, NE of Vladivostok.
Large basalts and basaltic-andesites lava flows cover several 1000 square km. [more]
