Hi Manny, I am an American living in Russia now for 25 years. I have worked in major Russian companies, sort of taking part in the building of the Russian post-Soviet market. My last project, which indirectly engaged Putin, was the creation of The Russia House at the World Economic Forum's Annual Meeting in Davos. I like how you see the links to Russia. Forgive me, but I will shill some articles here that you might find interesting and relate to this nice article you wrote.
