    The first is reasonable, the second is not in use by native speakers.  

    But almost all native speakers, at least in Britain, would actually ask: "Have you ever been to Russia?"

    Both the sentences carry different meanings.

    The first one enquiries someone if  he / she has ever visited Russia.

    The next one implies has the person ever lived in Russia for a short or long period.
