I wonder what you think of them?
Any of those companies will be good i'm sure. Setting up a UK company is a simple and automated process these days.
As another poster said you will need a UK registered address - there are plenty out there, but watch for expensive charges.
Given you're based in Russia though do you really want a UK business. You'll be subject to UK taxation and law. And if you bring money back on-shore to Russia I suspect you'll also be subject to Russian tax as well.
If your customers are going to be ~80% UK then worth considering I guess. Though you may also fall under UK regulators - have you thought about that?
My view - keep it simple! And if you're trying anything out of the ordinary make sure you get good advice. Will save you money in the long run.
