Jenny,
In the Soviet Union all metrical records were handed over to the civil authorities (Registry office - ZAGS in Russia, RAGS in Ukraine, etc) around 1920. All registrations after that time were recorded in that office using their standard forms for births, marriages, divorces, and deaths. After a certain number of years these records are turned over to the city or district archives.  Birth records for 1920 are definitely no longer in the Registry office, which is why I suggested to contact the city archive.  Naturally, there are privacy laws involved with these types of records and, hopefully, you can obtain the information for an event that took place 100 years ago.
