Spartak of course. Khimki is a small "suburban" club from the Moscow area.

I'm not sure about Spartak. I think now CSKA is more famous because of the UEFA Cup. And who has seen Spartak in the world for the last 10 years...

My 'nearest' club - they played in the Russian Cup Final, losing 1-0 to CSKA; so they are better than Sporting Lisboa and were famous for a couple of weeks this year.
I think everyone knows CSKA, Loko, Spartak, Dynamo and Zenit.

I was having a bit of fun; the two games took place in the space of two weeks.
CSKA 1 Khimki 0
CSKA 3 Sporting 1
Proof
Just don't ask how Spartak did against CSKA in between those two games

Its either Spartak or CSKA...right now i'd probably say CSKA cause we won the UEFA CUP...but if we hadn't then Spartak would be most famous I guess..

Spartak is the most famous name outside Russia by far, and this won't change...

In terms of fan bases and history (football wise) it's definatley Spartak followed by CSKA. In Russia itself CSKA and Spartak are recognized as two sporting institutions above everyone else. Dynamo also has a very impressive tradition in various sports but they don't have the fan base. Loko on the other hand....well everyone on XT knows my opinion of that team and its fans.

In the footballing sense i hate Spartak but there's no doubt that they have been Russia's top footballing side over the last 50 years and they'r erecognized for it. But ask any hockey fan and they'll know CSKA

Er... you was asking about "the most famous Russian club" not about "what Russian clubs are known outside Russia". Lokomotiv isn't _the most famous_, I'm sure.
