My wife was born in Kyrgyzstan and that is what we wrote, but on her green card it lists her country of birth as USSR!

You will be fine with Ukraine.

We are currently filling out my fiancées profile on the Russian consulates website. She was born in Ukraine but while it was still the USSR. My question is what should we put down as country of birth Russian Federation or

Ukraine is correct, and if you put USSR, that would also be OK. There was no Russian Federation when she was born. It was the USSR then.

My wife was born in USSR and her son born in Russia.

There's no need to over-think these questions. My grandmother was born where she was born, but on the day she was born, her community was part of Texas. A few years later, the border was re-designated as another fork of the red river, making her birthplace a part of Oklahoma. Was she born in Texas or Oklahoma? Either answer is correct, as there would be no birth certificate. In the OP's case, where will the birth certificate say she was born? The question is only a curiosity, as either answer would be both understood and accepted.
