The .rar indicates it is a compressed file. You'll have to de-compress it before you can run it. And then your virus-scanning program on your PC should catch it. From Russia I would doubt it is a virus. Most of the viruses are coming out of China.
If it turns out to be a virus, you can simply re-format your hard drive, reload your OS, and start out all over again. I do it all the time.

According to a paper I read in Wikileaks the worlds leader in all things both computer and illegal is Russia. Those guys are actually brilliant from what I read. I would not play with it if I were you. Unless you are brilliant at all things computer and illegal too.

I do too and that is what you would have to do but there can still be huge problems. They could get your bank account numbers, social security number, passwords to everything you use a password for online, get everything you type on your keyboard and set up your computer to be part of a child pornography network that you would never know about and while a format would wipe that out the FBI could already have you marked for a raid. In addition even after you wiped it out they could do it again right away especially if they have you on their list of vulnerable computers to take over. There are about a thousand other things they could do too. It is the Russians who do all of that kind of stuff according to what I read on Wikileaks.

A format won't wipe out a boot sector virus either.
