Response from Антон Владимирович[+++++]
This is only possible if the minor will have an accompanying person as a guardian, parent, or third party, for whom the parents must execute a power of attorney The power of attorney may be drawn up in any form on behalf of the two parents. The text of power of attorney must meet the requirements of Art. 185 of Civil Code of Russian Federation, i.e. it must contain information about who entrusts the power of attorney, whom it entrusts, for how long, in which direction the child should visit, the list of cities and settlements. Information about all the citizens named in the power of attorney and their passport data must be recorded The power of attorney must be signed by both parents. The application must necessarily list all those actions that the accompanying person is authorized to carry out during the trip with the child. It will not be superfluous to mention in the application form that crossing the border by the child is not allowed, as well as the delay at the place of rest beyond the specified period Sealed and signed statement of the child's parents may be needed not during the trip itself, but during the stay at the vacation destination in case of an emergency, when a quick decision about the child and identification of the person responsible for him/her is needed Crossing the Russian border without an adult is not safe and not permitted by law. The service "Accompanied Baby on Airplane" is obligatory for children 5-12 years old, if you want it can be ordered for teenagers up to 16-18 years old, depending on the company?

To travel outside of Russia you need notarized consent from one of your parents FZ No. 114 On the order of departure from the Russian Federation. For a visa, the consent of both parents is required. The Consent for departure must indicate the country where the child is visiting, the period of travel, and with whom or independently.
The trip will end even at the visa center - you simply will not receive the documents So, the border crossing and all sorts of hotel accommodations are no longer a topic for discussion.
It's not possible that at Russian border control, they won't let a minor through, or his parents, or another escort who has a travel permit. Those who are going to study, they have a document-certificate or a voucher for study and there is also a meeting party at the place of arrival. And they will not let a minor out of the RF just because they want to.
If the parents do not mind, it is quite possible to get a visa and leave the RF. It's more difficult to get a residence permit. Write to the hotels and find out.
For a visa, the notarized consent of both parents will be required. One parent's consent is enough to leave Russia, and you will already have two parents' consent. So you can get a visa and leave the country. But there is a question with hotels. Many do not accept unaccompanied minors, and no consent or power of attorney will help. So it's just a matter of getting in touch with the hotel and finding out.
To leave can, if on hand will be notarized permission from parents to leave. And here with the hotel check-in, it's a problem! No decent hotel will accept minors.
