Princess Victoria, Princess of Battenberg visited her sister Grand Duchess Elizabeth at Ilinskoe in 1907.

Her son Louis Mountbatten later surprised his Russian (Soviet) hosts by pointing out the rooms he had slept in as a child.
   
Did Louis Moiuntbatten visit Russia often before the abdication of the Tsar?

Quite a few times. He also had a crush on his cousin, Grand Duchess Maria.

Curiously the last time they saw eachother was early before the war. Victoria left her jewels with her sister Alexandra, for safekeeping, because she thought they would be more protected there, before returning to England. If only she'd knew.
   
Did Princess Victoria leave any tiaras with Alexandra?

Victoria really tried to get Tatiana, Maria and Anastasia out of Russia during the revolution--she wrote a letter to Arthur Balfour begging to be able to have the younger girls sent to her for safety, but her request was declined.

Quote
‘I quite realize that the boy is a political asset which no party in Russia would allow to be taken out of its hands, but the girls (except perhaps the eldest) can be of no value or importance,’ she said. ‘I and my husband would willingly keep them here in quiet obscurity.’ She received a reply that the difficulties in the way of such a proposal were ‘almost insuperable.’
