While most of what one's read on the topic has been moonshine, or the vodka-based equivalent, B-T there was a flurry of speculation about Russian
plasma-technology ( and, as I recall possible joint-work with Boeing when the Russian piggy-bank was empty) a few years back, and a search might get
you something there. Likewise, tales about Russian/Chinese co-operation on laser weapons in space.
If you ignore the years of nonsense about ABM treaties, most of what's come from Russia has been about missiles to beat the US shields rather than
their own anti-missile capacity.
the Russians were, of course, into this field well ahead of the Americans; but much of what I've read has been little more than desperate attempts
to sell old SAM's and the like to Third World desperadoes.
Happy searching - I'm sure you'll find something there.
