Gog is a man, and Magog is the name of a territory:

Ezekiel 38:3  I am against you Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal

Ezekiel 38:2  Son of man, set your face against Gog, the land of Magog

Gog is the one who heads up a gang of evil men who then march off to Israel to kill and steal.  With Gog are men of various nations, including Ethiopia and Libya.

The 325 AD Council of Nicaea altered parts of John's writings and Matthew's writing.   They altered the following:

Revelation 20:7-8  ...  Satan shall be set loose from his prison and shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them to do battle ....

Gog is not a nation, Gog is  man.   Pursuant to Revelation 20:7-8, Gog is a nation.

Perhaps the reason the  Jew Pharisees altered Revelation Ch. 20 is because they so much hate Gentiles that they want them all dead.   And all Gentiles are destroyed by God, according to Pharisee altered Revelation Ch. 20.    Gog and Magog are said to be the nations of Gentiles in Revelation 20:7-8, and Gog and Magog are destroyed:

Revelation 20:9   [And Gog and Magog] ... encircled the camp of the saints and the beloved city and fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them

Satan operates his deception among mankind through the thoughts he gives to men, and it is the evil hearts of men that ponder the thoughts given to them by Satan and agree with Satan and then carry out their evil thoughts. 

Satan goes to the man, Gog, with an idea, go kill the Jews and steal their wealth.   Gog gathers an army of men from among various nations to kill the people of Israel and steal from them.  But God kills Gog and his army so that they cannot carry out their evil plan, the idea for which plan came from Satan.

Gog the man is alive at the end of Christ's 1000 year reign on earth, alive at the time Satan is let loose from his prison for a short time.   Gog is not Russia, Gog is not any nation, he is man who has yet to be born.
