Redford is certainly *somebody* in disguise, and Lukin is a popular guess. But consider that there's not any real Russian characters listed in the cast other than Tasha (and "Russian Spider," whatever the **** that means); and that there's been nothing in the trailers or the set pics or the rumor mills or leaks about Russia or Russians; and that virtually all the action takes place in the good ol' US of A; and that it probably wouldn't be a shrewd marketing move by Disney/Marvel to try to sell CATWS to Russian audiences as a movie about Rooskies trying to take over 'Murica.
We all know who the villain group is by now, and they've gone global after starting out as a Nazi splinter group. I don't think we need to look any farther than that.
