HELP! Russian multiple entry Visas

So i was all set today to send off my application for a business multiple entry visa complete with Letter of Invertation only to be told by the agency here in Vancouver(that you now have to use, no direct applications!) that they are cracking down on issuing them to tourists and that my application WILL be rejected!

So has anyone had any experience of getting a biz visa very recently or even getting a double entry tourist visa and then maybe a single entry while on the road???

Any HELP would be appreciated i was meant to be leaving in a month :-(

I just received my double entry tourist visa yesterday with no problems (course, I am not AT the border yet) . The visa included the invitation letter also. Used a site called Go to Russia in San Francisco (and Atlanta). They said they could do it in 8 days and they easily did.
BTW. I am in the USA so .......
