Struggling with Business Visa Support Request

+1 vote
I am trying to give you my money but it is not easy!

I am applying for a 90-day business visa.  I do not have an organization that I will visit in Russia because I will be "independently exploring business opportunities".  I thought that the people providing the visa support letter would fill in that information with their own business information, but the site won't allow me to submit the form until I've listed the full contact details for the organization I will visit.  What do I put in these fields?  I received an earlier reply saying I should write "this organization" but I need to fill in something for name, address, contact person, phone number, name of hotel and address in order for the form to submit. It won't accept it when I leave them blank.  

Also, in the first section, under "personal information" it asks for a date of entry and a date of exit.  This is written under the section for "country/state of permanent residence".  How is that different from the date of entry and exit in the "arrival information" section?  Is it asking about when I entered my home country (which is at birth?) or is it asking me to duplicate the information I later include about my dates of travel to Russia?
