Dr. Pyotr Joannevich - Invited Guest at the Yeltsin - Clinton Summit
Justified caveats regarding Russian commercial traps and pitfalls in trade, finance and investment are not prominently emphasized by either the U.S. Government or media. American political and military interests do not necessarily correspond to commercial business interests. Official advice of government agencies may involve conflicts of interest with private business interests. Many apparent investments consist of tax dollars rather then allocations of private capital to commercial opportunities. In spite of all this and the graft and corruption profits can be made and capital safeguarded but "possession" remains ten 10ths of the law. Contracts are window dressing and legal recourse a figment of the imagination.
Dr. Pyotr Johannevich van de Waal-Palms has been licensed by the Ministry of Foreign Economic relations since 1989, and has developed an international reputation as an expert on Russia, The Baltics, The Commonwealth of Independent States ( Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia) and The Central Eurasian Republics of Kazkhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Kyrgyzstan.
