I don't know of any specific ones, but many airports in Russia have a boneyard section of civilian and cargo aircraft. The museum at Monino is also a bit of a boneyard in its own right. There is a large scrap materials market in Russia/CIS, and combined with harsh weather, I don't think planes sit around all that long.

Most airports in the former Soviet Union have a boneyard element to them. For example, my flights into Tbilisi allow me to trace the history of post-Soviet air transport in the NIS. You've got all sorts of Yaks and Tupolevs in various states of disrepair, as well as a handful former KLM Cityhopper turboprops from a failed venture to serve the Caucasus market.
