We pride ourselves on innovation and are delighted to be the first ones on the ground. We are driven by the idea of becoming closer to our clients and help them to be successful on the Russian market. Russia is not considered to be a simple market but we strongly believe that this experience can be very successful and this is confirmed by the experience of our existing clients. We also believe that this international integration will be beneficial for all countries and parties involved.”
