I assume you mean that you are from Russia and have an expired permanent residence card. If you have been living outside of the U.S. for more than six months, you will be considered to have abandoned your permanent residence status and will have to reapply for admission. You may be able to travel to the U.S. as a visitor. If you are here in the U.S. you simply need to apply for a renewal.
