I'm happy to answer the question you asked, but I wanted to point you at a thread with many existing helpful tips, advice, information, and interpretation of the rules (it's a great resource when planning an xONEx): The oneworld explorer ticket FAQs.

No. While backtracking within a continent is permitted (except for Hawaii and North America), SYD-PER uses up your one permitted to/from PER transcon within Australia, so you can fly SYD-PER but then you'd have to add a connection to to from PER to MEL:

WITHIN AUSTRALIA ONLY ONE NONSTOP/SINGLE PLANE SERVICE FLIGHT IS PERMITTED BETWEEN THE FOLLOWING POINTS -
BNE/CBR/CNS/SYD/MEL - PER
CBR/MEL/SYD - DRW
BNE/MEL/SYD - BME
BNE/MEL/SYD - KTA


You can fly each line once, and you want to fly the first line (the PER line) twice. Add a connection (or stop) (such as ADL) or connect to NRT another way.

Thank you for your sharing.
I'd suggest asking in a Russia related forum or even a TripAdvisor forum.
