Russian passports are of two types: domestic passports issued to citizens of Russia for the purpose of certifying identity, international passports are issued for the purpose of international travel.
The Russian internal passport is the primary identity document for citizens of the Russian Federation residing in Russia. It is initially issued at the age of 14 by the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs, and has to be renewed at the ages of 20 and 45. Every citizen over 14 residing in Russia is required to have a valid internal passport.
The passport contains the full name, sex, date and place of birth and a photograph of the bearer. It also contains remarks about the holder's registered home address, military duty, marital status, children under 14, other internal and foreign passports issued by the Russian authorities, blood type (optional) and individual taxpayer identification number (also optional). Any unauthorized remarks render the passport invalid. All the data is filled in Russian.
The Russian police will sometimes do random ID checks to look for draft dodgers, illegal immigrants, people who don't have the proper registration, etc.
Each passport has a data page and a signature page. A data page has a visual zone and a machine-readable zone. The visual zone has a digitized photograph of the passport holder, data about the passport, and data about the passport holder:
Type [of document, which is 'P' for 'passport']
Code [of the issuing country, which is 'RUS' for 'Russian Federation']
Passport Series and No.
Nationality [which is 'Russian Federation']
Date of Birth
Place of Birth (lists only the city and 'USSR' for people born before 1992)
Date of Issue
Date of Expiration
Russian internal passports are only in Cyrillic. International passports of Russia, and most countries must be at a minimum in 2 languages.
E.g. US Passports are in English, French, Spanish; UK passports in English & French.
If a Russian sends as "proof" a Cyrillic ONLY passport for travel to West, IT IS A SCAM!

The Russian internal passport serves as an identity document only within Russia and small number of ex-Soviet Union countries (such as Ukraine). Passport for travel abroad (in Russian: заграничный паспорт, zagranichny pasport sometimes translated as international passport or foreign passport) is required for travel abroad to all other countries.
Two types of passports are being issued now in Russia: old type passport and new type biometric passport. Both passport are currently valid for only 5 years, but the new law have presently passed introducing 10 years validity and increase in number of pages up to 46 (from 36 for the old type passports) for biometric passports only.
A citizen can be denied a passport for travel abroad, and hence the right to leave Russia if (s)he:
had, in order to get access to classified information, signed a contract with the government that included a provision restricting his/her right to leave the country;
has been conscripted to the military or alternative civil service;
is a defendant under criminal prosecution or convicted by court (with unspent conviction);
is in breach of a court order;
provided false information in his/her application.
Children under 18 travelling without being accompained by at least one parent must have written consent of both parents ceritified by a notary.
In addition to the standard zagranichny pasport there are three special-purpose types of passports for traveling abroad: diplomatic passport, service passport (issued to government employees going abroad on official business) and seaman's passport.
