This chapter explores the shifting representations and embodied encounters with the Soviet Union/Russia. Given the Bond film’s initiation in the 1960s, the cartographies of the Cold War play an important role notwithstanding the transnational organization SPECTRE. Bond encounters Soviet agents, technology, objects, practices, and sites and spaces throughout the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. He learns to seduce Soviet women, navigate through Soviet environments, master Soviet objects such as tanks and planes, and work with their spies and spy masters if the mission demands. The Soviet Union, and latterly post-Cold War Russia, are depicted in the Bond franchise as unreliable and unsafe spaces. Even if Bond can form personal and intimate relationships with Russian women (and some men), he has to navigate through a country that cannot control its objects or people, which threaten national and international security. Unlike their British counterparts, the loyalty of Soviet and Russian characters is depicted as fragile and liable to be corrupted in favor of criminal and terroristic organizations.
