Highly likely, the border guard will check only three documents - passport, visa and migration card, but you must have and present an insurance policy upon request. If you cannot provide a valid insurance, you will be denied entry to Russia.

You should know that EMERGENCY medical aid in Russia is absolutely free, regardless of your citizenship, available ID or insurance. But, if for medical reasons it is necessary to continue treatment in-hospital, then you need a valid health insurance policy or ... a lot of money.
