The following weapons were used in the film Problem with Three Unknowns (Zadacha s tremya neizvestnymi):

Makarov PM

Makarov PM pistols, service sidearms of Militsia personnel, are seen in hands of Major Andrey Dmitrievich Dorokhov (Leonhard Merzin) and Lt. Matushkin (Vladimir Gerasimov) on shooting range. Strangely, their PMs switch to TT-33 pistols in action scenes.
