If a friend of mine flew over to Moscow on Friday on a tourist visa from a visa company, stayed at my place Sat and Sunday, and left Russia on Monday morning, do they still need to be registered as registration offices and visa office closed weekend.

Registration must occur within 3 BUSINESS days of arrival. Weekends don't count as business days.

I think you will be fine - my brother in law stayed with me for a week, and left without having been registered. The general view is that registration is really only needed by the cops who stop you on the street, and they don't check it at the border.

For instance, the people at visahouse.ru told me that I didn't need to worry about re-registering my daughter's visa, as it was hardly likely that the police would stop a five-year old on the street. And they were confident that there would be no problems on the border.
