Personal recommendation
You should know Russian at an adequate level, you should be prepared for extreme bureaucracy, long winters and sometimes unfriendly people! But you can expect having a great time of your life if you cope with the characteristics of this special country!

Overall
Lomonosov Moscow State University is considered to be the best Russian University. Indeed, the education you get there is of a high standard. The curriculum is very diverse, however, it is rather rigid, as you can choose the department, but not your subjects. Anyway, during my studies, I acquired comprehensive and deep knowledge of my subject, which helps me now in my career as an English teacher and translator. 
Still, the University has some drawbacks like bureaucracy, the lack of student life, poor accommodation facilities, and old lecture halls with no new equipment at all.

People that I have talked to all had positive feedback, but Russia can make your life difficult if you don't know some of the unwritten rules of bureaucracy there.
