Specs #1) Some of the resources on the Internet list the following requirements for Russian Passport photos. They are similar to the Passport photo specifications for the European Union but a bit different. Russian Passport photos require a 5 mm space between the top of the head and the top of the photo.
The picture size must be 35 mm x 45 mm (1 3/8" x 1 3/4").

This company is terrific to work with! I highly recommend it! I needed 3.5 x 4.5 cm passport photos and quickly learned that most photo places in the US are not able to produce this size photos with adherence to all passport photo guidelines. I turned to the web and came across OnlinePassportphoto.com. It seemed too good to be true - take photos at home, upload or e-mail to the company, pay online, and get 8 passport photos in 4x6 pic format that can be saved to the flash drive and printed at any photo printing location. I decided to take a chance and had a wonderful experience. First, I had a question on timing as I needed photos in 12 vs. promised 24 hrs. I e-mailed and got an immediate response telling me that I will be able to get photos in 12 hrs. I followed the instructions, submitted the photos, and in less than 12 hrs had perfect passport photos that I printed it at CVS. I couldn't believe how easy it was! Not only did I get everything I needed, but the responsiveness and commitment to promised results were also great! And it is so affordable!
thank you very much. We got pictures yesterday from Walgreens. They look great.
I will recommend you to my friends and will come back soon for more pictures.
Have a great day.

We are not able to find authentic
detailed Russian Visa photo specifications so your best bet is to refer
to your paperwork or visa instructions, or contact the consulate you
are applying to and ask for the size.
Based on our experience, most foreign consulates in the USA (including Indian consulates in the USA, China consulates in the USA, Mexico consulates , etc) accept 2x2 inch photos for visitors. Most probably your consulate may be accepting 2x2 inch photos too.
Some Russian Consulates in the USA have asked for 35x45mm sized photos. The best specs for 35x45mm we found are from Consulate General of the Russian Federation in New York: http://www.ruscon.org/visa_dep_ENG.html
