I may be visiting Russia a few times this year - is it better to get a business visa? Why would I do this instead of just obtaining a tourist visa every time I go? Or is there a limit to the number of times you can get a tourist visa per year?

Many thanks

Yes, business visa is the best for traveling many times in a year. You'd save money on consulate fees and time queueing etc.
