Apparently it's primiarily a military air base, and there doesn't seem to be the traffic to support them, though five weekly regional flights are planned. From Wikipedia:

The only other major Russian City I can see without Regular Air Services is Smolensk (pop 330 000). But Smolensk is only 4 hours drive from Moscow and the area gets a lot of fog so it's less surprising they don't have Air Services.
