Requests for 6 months Russian business visa :
Original (fax not accepted!) of the invitation (I booked for 140$ at Infinity
they had good service. 40$ extra for UPS sending of the original invitation), see my big selection of companies on Travel Guide Russia.
Aids certificate : this certificate that proves that you don't have aids can be obtained in Tbilisi in one day in the Aids
clinic for 12 lari. Take bus no 2 from Rustaveli to the Central
Republic Clinic, from there it's only a couple of hundred metres walk to the "Spida" (=aids
in Russian) centre on Kazbegi street.
Proof of insurance covering travels in Russia : a fax of your insurance agreement from your insurance company is enough.
