“Russia is one of the few countries in which the education level of the population is a very strong asset. And this asset works. In the 1990s and beginning of the 2000s, a lot of our engineers were driving the IT industry and are now driving Internet technology. All the companies that dominate the domestic market are local Russian companies. The two largest European Internet companies in Europe are both in Russia.”
