This guide provides an extensive collection of annotated print and online information resources on Russia's business and economy, though it by no means claims to be comprehensive. The cited print sources include only publications from the collection of the Library of Congress. Most, though not all, of the subscription databases described in this guide are available for on-site users at The Library of Congress.
Free Internet resources listed in this guide include Web sites of Russian and U.S. government agencies, international financial organizations, commercial establishments, trade associations and business news outlets.

Since only a small part of the content of the Russian web sites is in English, knowledge of the Russian language still gives a researcher an edge over a non-speaker. If you have any further questions, please Ask A Librarian.
