I always paint my models with a dark base coat. You can try misting on a lighter green shade on top, like Tamiya NATO Green. That is a good match for Soviet/Russian green. You just highlight the panels, flat and open areas, middle of wheels, etc. Gives some depth to the model.
You could try drybrushing with lighter shades
Colored oil filters with light greens, tans and yellows will brighten/lighten the model.
Use a bit of pastel weathering to add some depth or lighten the dark green base coat with MiG green lightening pigments.
