A video by Scott Manley has some adventure seeds for Twilight 2000 players.
The Soviets contemplated emergency landing sites in the USA should one of their Soyuz spacecrafts run into trouble. In addition to locations in the Great Plains of US and Canada, sites in France, Ukraine, and the seas off Japan(!) were planned. The Cold War being well in effect, these contingencies weren’t discussed between the governments.
The feds wrote up instructions for local first-responders in safely interacting with a Soyuz craft, however these apparently were never distributed. The Russians themselves printed instructions right on the capsule in Russian and English.
