If you want to apply for a business M type for that, you need an invitation letter from your business partner. If you apply for tourist L type, the invitation is not needed if you have round trip air tickets and hotel reservation.

Can your embassy issue a Chinese Work Visa for a US citizen?
Hello Friends,
I currently live in China and will be coming to Russia this June to watch the World Cup, but during that time my current Chinese Visa will expire. I usually renew my work entry permit in Hong Kong, but if it is possible I would prefer to manage it in Moscow during our travels. Please let me know if this is possible. Many Thanks.

It's possible for you to manage it from the China embassy in Moscow. If you are still worried, you can call the embassy to confirm this beforehand.
