Weather Is Good on Deribasovskaya, It Rains Again on Brighton Beach (Russian title Na Deribasovskoy khoroshaya pogoda, ili na Brayton Bich opyat idut dozhdi) is a Russian-American 1992 comedy detective movie directed by Leonid Gaidai. Russian special agent Fyodor Sokolov (Dmitry Kharatyan) and American special agent Mary Star (Kelly McGrill) join forces to capture the mysterious boss of the Russian mafia in New York known only as Artist (Andrey Myagkov) (Artist is Russian for Actor). Artist never reveals his true identity and always appears disguised as one of former leaders of the USSR - Lenin, Stalin, Khrushchev or Brezhnev.

Grenades

RGD-33 Hand Grenade

In the scene where Artist (Andrey Myagkov) is disguised as Lenin, Kravchuk (Mikhail Kokshenov), dressed as a Red sailor from the Russian Civil war, carries an RGD-33 hand grenade. This grenade lacks the common fragmentation sleeve. In the final scene, Fyodor Sokolov (Dmitry Kharatyan) uses a bundle of RGD-33 grenades.

The Russian term "ruchnaya granata" means "hand grenade" but the word "ruchnaya" is also used when speaking about pet animals, so Kravchuk jokes about his "pet grenade".

URG Training Hand Grenade

In the final scene, Artist (Andrey Myagkov) throws a hand grenade that appears to be a URG training grenade. The URG is widely used in Soviet/Russian army as an stand-in for the F-1 hand grenade.

Trivia

Armor

Russian BTR-70. Note that this example lacks its standard KPVT machine gun.
Fake M41 Walker Bulldog tank. This mockup is build on a T-44 chassis, originally for the 1979 film The Centaurs (Kentavry) about the 1973 Chilean coup d'├ętat (screenshot). Later, this tank appeared in several other Soviet movies and currently can be seen in the Mosfilm museum.

Unknown Smith & Wesson Revolver

On some of the video covers of the film, Fyodor Sokolov (Dmitry Kharatyan) holds a revolver which is similar to both the Smith & Wesson Model 36 Chief's Special and Smith & Wesson Model 37 Airweight. It is likely hand drawn (or, perhaps, salvaged from an unrelated photo) into the picture, so it is likely not meant to be any revolver in particular.
