Not a MiG-27 - see simplified intakes and how far forward the intake splitter plate comes:

Most likely a MiG-23 though could conceivably be a MiG-23BN which had the duckbill nose but the original MiG-23 intakes:

My money is on a more conventional MiG-23 variant though.

This is a MiG-23 in the abandoned far east base of Keton (Russian name Smyrnich). A read the story about the base some time ago - two skeletons of MiG-23 were found there: one single seat fighter and one trainer.
There are some astonishing photos from this place, AFAIK there is a movie in the style of "Abandoned Places/ Abandoned Structures" as well.
Check this album on Imgur with many photos.
Cheers!

I had lost track of where I had seen this. Thanks for that.
It was immediately food for a dio. But as I said to much on my plate for an 80 year old.
