Russian Visa

Comrades, I'm looking to travel to Russia in early July for 2 weeks to visit some friends that live in Moscow, but I'm having trouble figuring out how to get a visa.
Do I just go to the embassy in my country (Germany) or do I need some kind of invitation from a travel agency? I'll be staying at one of my buddies' houses, so I won't be traveling with an agency or booking a hotel.

I have a US and a German passport if that does anything.

    This is the most moronic time, this century, for Westerners to travel to Russia (and probably China too) unless absolutely necessary.

      normal americans are always welcomed here
      the thing is that most of you are absolute pathetic degenerates
      amishes would have visa free entry to Russia when I will become president
      while usual american degenerate would be banned from travelling here even with visa

        Government travel warnings are useful if they don't come from Anglos.

        They are occasionally useful.
        1) To check insurance coverage, as noted by

        I should note, most travel insurance will be void by entering countries your government advises you not to.

        2) For consular information. Your government will generally tell you if they have a consulate or embassy operating in other countries.

      That depends on the insurance.
      They definitely won't reimburse you until you come back though.

    Hmm, maybe you can't figure out how to get a visa because Russia does not want American tourists at this time. You do not have a right to enter a hostile foreign country.

      normal people can enter, we don't care on nationality/country of origin
      the matter is that only little percent of you are normal

    how do you even withdraw money?

      You bring in cash USD/EUR, there's no problem with changing hard currency for RUB in any bank, though dedicated change points often have better rates. Or you can cash out crypto. Either way, you'll have to lug around a wad of paper until banks here roll out a "tourist card" option.

    As an American getting the visa seems easy, but how do I go about booking my hotels and flights within the country when I can't use my card? I have everything set except for that part

      I'm having the same problem thinking about travelling there (not american though). I guess people will have to travel like they do in Iran, bringing a shitload of cash. The problem is that Russia seems to be much more expensive.
