Below is what I posted on another thread (the ADVICE bit was really for longer journeys across Russia sooner than St Peter & Kaliningrad when you are always an hour or so from the border) -
Russia Visas can only be applied for in your 'home' country or in another country if you can show Residency Rights in that country - i.e. not just visiting/touring.
Visa requirements and cost varies depending on your passport country. For specific info look at the website of the Russian Embassy in the country where you would be applying. There are commercial agencies who can deal with everything including obtaining Letters of Invitation.
ADVICE: Make sure your Russia visa is for sufficient time - inluding a margin for delay.
Russia is Russia - delays are a natural way of life!
Visas cannot be extended or renewed and if you are not out of Russia by the expiry date you will get serious problems including further delays, fines and possible refusal of future visas.
Whatever the reason for your delay, you (but not necessarily your vehicle) must still leave within time and to apply for another visa you must go back to your home country!
