Generally, you only need to offer your proof of legal stay or residence status. Permanent residence is not a must.

The appointment
Hello. I have been trying to find an appointment in the AVAS website in the embassy in Moscow for a week. I could not find any. What should I do. Do you think I would find an appointment in August. Please help me with that. I feel so bad about it

That's because there are more applicants than appointments. You may go for it at the first time they are released.

Generally, if you apply for a student visa, you need to prepare the following documents including: valid passport, passport photo, completed application form, JW201 or JW202 form, admission notice issued by Chinese university, residence permit in Russia. Your wife can apply for S visa and you need to offer an invitation letter to her.
