I am not specialist. But this should be Arctophila sp., fits to A. bombiformis. I do not know if there is another similar species in Russia.

It just occurred to me, that this may be Mesembrina sp. It was photographed on the cow dung. Not a typical place for a hoverfly.

Mesembrina mystacea, maybe.
