Moscow is the capital of Russia. Queen Consolidated has an important subsidiary there, and it was the birthplace of Isabel Rochev. Among its current residents (and presumably one of the city's fabled plethora of billionaires) is Anatoly Knyazev, the leader of the Solntsevskaya Bratva and personal friend of Oliver Queen.
Justin Whicker ran a sex trafficking ring based in Moscow, which delivered women to The Glades. In late 2012, Oliver Queen and John Diggle traveled to Moscow under the pretense of seeing a show at the National Ballet Theatre to find Whicker. Once Oliver found and interrogated Whicker's accomplice, Irena Poutchkova, he tracked down and killed Whicker and his men, subsequently dismantling his operation.
In late 2014, Oliver, Diggle, and Felicity Smoak, along with the last minute addition of Isabel Rochev, traveled to Moscow ostensibly to check up on the Queen Consolidated holdings and attempt to shore up the company's flagging stock profile. In truth, Diggle was looking to locate and rescue A.R.G.U.S. agent Lyla Michaels, who disappeared while tracking down Floyd Lawton for him. To do this, Diggle got himself arrested and Oliver sought the help of his old friend, Anatoly Knyazev, to purchase the drugs that would get Dig consigned to the prison which held Lyla. Meanwhile, at the hotel, Oliver and Isabel conversed in fluent Russian and eventually had a one-night stand. They both appeared to take a "what happens in Russia" approach. However, Felicity was rather less forgiving of Oliver's lapse in judgment.
