If it's set in Russia then surely some Lomo's would be the way to go?
You would want to find a mechanically okay set.
Beautiful glass that all the old Russian movies were shot on. Stalker, Mirror, Sayat Nova etc

As Freya suggested spherical and anamorphic lomos would be a good start.
Spherical lomos are fantastic but they are a bit tough to work with and there are not too many "good working" sets out there.
Anamorphic lomos are beautiful and they are relatively easy to find for rent.
Have a good day.

Was able to find the look we were looking for, for the 1970s quirky mob thriller I begin shoot next week Thursday.
Shooting on a set of Uncoated Zeiss Super Speeds Mark ii (18,25,35,50,85) with a series of Glimmer Glass filters (GG1/2,GG1,GG2)
Thanks for the suggestions guys I do love the look of those old Lomos!
