The Yomiuri Shimbun (Tokyo): Business tactic: investment in Russia is a risky business

A lawsuit filed recently shows that investment in Russia is a risky business.

The Russian Federal Service for the Supervision of Natural Resources filed the action with a Moscow court, claiming that a natural resource development project off Sakhalin Island should be suspended because it has failed to take proper measures to preserve the environment.

Suspicions cannot be erased that the lawsuit was not filed out of a desire to protect the environment but is instead maneuvering on the part of the Kremlin to realize the participation of Gazprom, the state-controlled gas company, in the project under favorable conditions. and its sister non-profit websites,,,,,, and are owned by John Donovan. There is also a Wikipedia feature.
