I carry a titanium bowl. Weighs 1.8 ounces. I heat up about a 1/4 cup of water first, dump it in the bowl, then set the canister in the bowl of warm water. This keeps the canister warm and functioning well while I'm melting snow or boiling water for my meals.

According to this page, only liquid-fuel, petrol-compatible stoves are recommended in the Elbrus region, as other types of fuel are not available. This doesn't mean it's impossible to find them anywhere in Russia, but definitely confirm if and where this is possible. My guess is that contacting a guide service familiar with the area is your best bet.

I don't think I'd carry a soda bottle filled with Petrol in my pack, but to each his own I guess...
