History

When two Goa'uld Ha'taks came into orbit of Earth, Russia did not detect them. (SG1: "The Serpent's Lair") Major General George Hammond stated that if Russia found out about the Stargate they would be angered that it had been kept from them. (SG1: "Secrets") In 1999 when the United States of America moved to DEFCON 3 threat level, Russia similarly followed, unaware of the reasons for the increased level. When they detected something entering Earth's atmosphere they inquired about it to the US. (SG1: "Nemesis") When the Russian submarine Blackbird went missing, the Russians asked the US if they knew anything about it but they denied any knowledge. (SG1: "Small Victories") Russia recovered the Stargate from the bottom of the Pacific Ocean and began their own Stargate program, but all of their personnel were killed 37 days after beginning operations. (SG1: "Watergate") The United States made a deal to share information and technology in exchange for Russia agreeing to not use their Stargate. (SG1: "Chain Reaction")

Russia sent a team to go with SG-1 to P2X-338 to recover a missing Russian team from their Stargate program. Afterwards Russia was still adamant about taking a part in the Stargate Program. (SG1: "The Tomb") More negotiations took place when the SGC needed to use the Russian's Stargate. (SG1: "48 Hours") Russia later traded their Stargate to the United States in exchange for money, the plans to the X-302 and the X-303, and a Russian team operating at the SGC. (SG1: "Redemption, Part 2") The Russian government was informed that Anubis' fleet was in orbit of Earth so they could prepare their military. (SG1: "Lost City, Part 2") Russia sent personnel on the Atlantis expedition. (SGA: "Rising") When the PRIOR2 virus was spreading across the world, Russia grounded all air travel and closed ports to foreign ships. (SG1: "The Fourth Horseman, Part 2")

The country was supported by China to run their own Stargate Program which Russia used as leverage to obtain the next BC-304 in exchange for the United States continuing to use the Stargate. The Korolev was rushed into service but destroyed by an Ori Warship. (SG1: "Crusade", "Camelot", "Flesh and Blood")

Alternate Timelines

  • In an alternate timeline, Russia had bad relations with the United States and in 2008 they found a Stargate aboard the wreck of the Achilles. They started a project to study it but the staff eventually stopped working on it. Russia came under attack like the rest of Earth when Ba'al's fleet arrived in orbit. (Stargate: Continuum)
