I don't think any Russian airlines have bases outside of their main hubs. The ones that do are the airlines formed outside of Moscow who kept their former bases after moving to Moscow airports (such as UTair at SGC or S7 at OVB). The only example of a newly formed base that I know of is S7's hub in IKT. Aeroflot prefers a simpler (?) model - if they need a base somewhere they either buy out an existing airline (a practice they learned through Donavia and Nordavia to be painfully detrimental) or establish a subsidiary.
