A trio from Moscow that's closer to Zeuhl than any other Russian prog-rock band I've heard so far. I found out about them thanks to this video (unfortunately, this song isn't included in the EP):

...Well, Christian Vander should be proud of such followers :) On RYM, they're being described as brutal Zeuhl in the vein of Runaway Totem (not familiar with this band, perhaps another one to check out) and Koenjihyakkei:
"When drummer Olga Nosova starts singing, This trio from Moskow sometimes sounds like a stripped down version of Koenjihyakkei. Along with the interesting Fedor Fokin on guitar and Anton Kolosov on bass and various effects, the pieces have a more experimental character, without improvising too much. A mostly noisy brew with a penchant for Zeuhl"
