This episode features a combination of locations in St. Petersburg & Prague. An excerpt from George Lucas: The Creative Impulse:

Disconcertingly, Russian soldiers offered to sell the crew a Scud missle for $10,000, and a nuclear power plant blew up near a filming location (this was actually a radioactive gas leak at Sosnovy Bar Nuclear Power Plant).”
