Yeah, this is the Russian space shuttle "Buran". This is one of the prototypes that haven't been in space. It sits in an amusement park ("Gorky park") in Moscow. Only one Buran was launched into space in 1988 without crew. It made it back to Earth safely and landed automatically. Then it turned out that the project was not economically viable and it was killed.
