Is there any link where I can get .shp files for Mexico and Russia. I can see these countries in the OpenStreetMap with a quite nice level of the details, but I am not able to find a link from which it would be possible do download the shape files (.shp).

Thank you! Boris

The words Mexico and Russia in the answer are clickable links to the CloudMade download pages. You'll find the shapefiles listed there with a name like russian-federation.shapefiles.zip

OSM data in shapefiles can be found at some third-party services. They are updated periodically. Check the site for details. You'll find other formats in addition to shapefiles as well.

Russia

Mexico
