We have enjoyed working with (Patents from RU) whom we have found responsive, commercially aware and given to charging rather reasonably (possibly because he is not based in Petersburg or Moscow but in the Udmurt Republic, a sovereign republic within the Russian Federation)

According to the Trademark Law of Russia, foreign applicants are to register trademarks in Russia solely via patent attorneys registered in Russia.
All foreign patent attorneys who offer trademark registration services in Russia are in fact acting as intermediaries for their Russian partners. Naturally, intermediaries add their markup (often 50% and more) to Russian trademark attorneys' fees.
For starters, you can just order a trademark registrability search in Russia - you pay after receiving results.
You may want to make sure the domains <YOURmark>.RU and <YOURmark>.SU are available and purchase it before we file for the trademark - the cost of domain name registration is paltry
compared to the cost of wrestling the domain away from a cybersquatter. You can always drop the domain later if you end up not using it.
You can avoid paying extra by dealing directly with our company which is based in Russia. Our registered patent attorneys will take care of all matters.
We've been dealing with patent attorneys and many direct clients from around the world for 8 years.

We'll be sure to warn you if the trademark has any adverse meaning in Russian language.
Please note: Russia uses the "first-to-file" policy
As our colleagues PatSGr note it, "no evidence of use is required upon filing of a trademark application.
The rights to the mark will belong to the person who files the application first, even if a mark was used for a long time in Russia by another company. But evidence of use might be helpful for restoring rights to the mark, captured by an indecent competitor.
There were cases when an established firm had been importing its goods into Russia for several years and its business reached a good turnover, but it somehow did not think of registration of its mark in this country. Then it appeared that its mark was already registered by another small firm which did not produce any goods and did not use the mark, but just held rights for it in full accordance with the Russian legislation. And this small firm approached the importer and claimed violation of its trademark rights and demanded payment of compensation for the unauthorised use of the registered mark.
There are certain firms in Russia that hunt for the actually used but not registered marks, they register the marks in their name and then approach the legitimate mark owner with the demand for compensation. This poses a problem, which could be solved, but rather it should be prevented. Before actual importation of any goods into Russia, the marks should be duly registered, particularly it is important to register the company name as trademark, if it is used on the goods."
