Well, the first step is to get yourself a shapefile (or a GML, or a postGIS 
DB) with the russian border. Do you have it?

The second step would be editing osm-template.xml with a text editor and have 
a look at the part where the world boundaries shapefiles are loaded. Then 
change them to load your own data source for the russian boundaries. IIRC, 
the Mapnik wiki has some documentation on the XML format.
