The only real Russian Embassy in the US is in Washington where their
Ambassador is stationed, although arguably their UN Office in NYC has
the status of am Embassy. Embassies have to do with international
diplomacy. Their Seattle office is a consulate, which is what most
people deal with for passports, visas, import/export permits, and
similar personal/commercial stuff rather than diplomatic stuff.
Commonly the Embassy of a country is also a consulate or, as it is
sometimes described, has a consular affairs branch.
