All tortoises seem to benefit from the availability of humid area that they can retreat to. In the case of the Russian tortoise the general conditions should be dry but they do seem to like being able to choose a humid spot on occasion.

For your setup a rubbermaid box with a good layer of moist sand should work nicely. Cut a hole in the side of the box for access. You want to position the box right side up with the lid in place.

Again, place this in the warm side of the enclosure.
