All, I'm headed to Russia on behalf of a client next week. Though I have plenty of Russian relatives, including a cousin in Moscow, we don't have any truly "independent" business contacts, and information from the FSR tends to be highly tailored to the listener (in other words, we're hearing a lot of bullshit). Since we seem to have all manner of high-rollers, king makers, and otherwise lofty dudes here, I thought I'd see if anyone has a Russian contact they consider reliable. I'm not looking to do business with them, I just want to get their opinion on some general questions regarding regulations, currency control, and other items where I've gotten widely divergent opinions. You can't talk to too many people. I will, of course, compensate them for their time. Thanks!
