Last year they lifted the requirement of having local navigator/leader. You have to file for an airspace use permit in 2 month advance. That's a lot of paperwork, but free. AOPA Russia will help you with that, and you'll be welcomed at any private airfield you fly to here. Yet, having someone Russian-speaking and with radio communication skills will be handy anyway. Some zone controllers still don't speak English here, especially those at under FL60.
Also, entry via Pskov is pretty expensive (120 Euros whereas same services in Tartu cost 23) but not impossible once you have the said permit.

1) Pilots from Kaliningrad region invite foreign aviators to visit the westernmost part of Russia on summer 2019.
2) More on TR-301TV, the turboprop redesign of An-2 that turned out a great plane for skydivers (all the best from good old An-2 and all the perks of a turboprop)
3) SK-04 is a new land plane from Samara: seats four, runs on two Jabiru engines and flies for more than 500 miles at a time at more than 100 kts
