  • 2. <ul><li>Russia is a transcontinental country extending over much of northern Europe. </li></ul><ul><li>Russia is the largest country in the world, covering more than an eighth of the Earth’s land area; with 142 million people. </li></ul><ul><li>Russia has the world's largest reserves of mineral and energy resources. It has the world's largest forest reserves and its lakes contain approximately one-quarter of the world's fresh water. </li></ul><ul><li>Mountain ranges are found along the southern borders, such as the Caucasus and in the eastern parts, such as the Verkhoyansk Range or the volcanoes on Kamchatka Peninsula. The Ural Mountains, rich in mineral resources, form a north-south range that divides Europe and Asia. </li></ul>INTRODUCTION
  • 3. GUIDELINES FOR BUSINESS DRESS <ul><li>There is an old Russian proverb &quot;they meet you depending on how you're dressed and they say good bye depending on how wise you seem.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>Now a days, Russian business people pay a lot of attention to how they are dressed. </li></ul><ul><li>If you're a man, you will be to wear a suit and tie (make sure not to wear the same ones every day) for all your meetings, whether it's in an office or restaurant. Dark colours and white shirts are only for special ocasions. </li></ul><ul><li>If you go to Russia during the winter, you should bring very warm clothes, including hats and gloves. </li></ul><ul><li>Jeans and sneakers can be acceptable casual wear. </li></ul><ul><li>Women must wear a long-sleeved blouse, a long skirt below the knees, and an hat, when visiting a Russian Orthodox church. </li></ul>
  • 4. CONVERSATIONS <ul><li>Visitors should try to speak in a calm, moderate tone of voice at all times. </li></ul><ul><li>If you make the effort to speak even a few sentences of their language the Russian people will be delighted. </li></ul><ul><li>They can be extremely frank, it all depends on the situation. </li></ul><ul><li>When a Russian touches another person during conversation, it is usually a sign of confidence. </li></ul><ul><li>Bringing up the subject of Russian culture and history can be an appreciated gesture </li></ul><ul><li>There is tremendous affection for children in this culture; if you are a parent, showing photographs of your children can be an effective way of building good will. </li></ul>
  • 5. WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW BEFORE NEGOTIATING <ul><li>The use of business cards is common, since telephone books are not distributed in certain areas. In addition to your full name and title, ensure that you include any university degrees you have earned. </li></ul><ul><li>In Russian business culture, there are few women in positions of real authority. It's essential for women business travellers to dress and act professionally at all times. </li></ul><ul><li>When decision-makers are present, meetings can be a time for all participants to exchange information and ideas. </li></ul><ul><li>Knock and wait for admittance before opening a closed office door. Also, when you leave a room, ensure that the door is closed behind you. </li></ul>
  • 6. ADDRESSING OTHERS WITH RESPECT <ul><li>For a woman, the second name ends with suffixes “a” or “ovna” added, which means “daughter of.” </li></ul><ul><li>Married women take their husband's last name. </li></ul><ul><li>Some names are so common that you will need additional information to identify the correct person. </li></ul><ul><li>Only people who are very intimate friends or relations refer to one another by the first name. </li></ul><ul><li>Usually, Russians have three names. </li></ul><ul><li>For a man, the second name ends with the suffixes “vich” or “ovich” meaning “son of.” </li></ul>
  • 7. ACCEPTABLE PUBLIC CONDUCT <ul><li>Eye contact is very important, and must be maintained as long as the individual is addressed. </li></ul><ul><li>Smoking in public places is still a common habit, the Russians are slowly becoming aware of the need to impose some restrictions on this activity. </li></ul><ul><li>Only during greeting Russians people display affection in public. Family and good friends will engage in an animated embrace and kiss each other on the cheek </li></ul><ul><li>The Russian word “nyekulturny” is popularly used to refer to anything considered uncultured, bad mannered, or otherwise socially unacceptable. </li></ul><ul><li>The “thumbs-up” sign can be an acceptable gesture of approval. </li></ul><ul><li>Speaking or laughing loudly in public is discouraged. </li></ul>
  • 8. GIFT GIVING <ul><li>General Guidelines: </li></ul><ul><li>Russians have take pleasure in giving and receiving gifts. Cheaper gifts do not have to be wrapped, while more expensive ones should be. When invited to a Russian home, bring a gift of chocolates, dessert items, good wine, or other alcohol than vodka. If there are children in the family you should give them a small gift, such as a toy or candy. It is considered bad luck to give a pregnant woman a baby gift until after the baby is born. </li></ul><ul><li>Selecting Flowers: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>It is a good idea bringing a bouquet of flowers for women when you are visiting. Make sure you have an odd number of flowers. Even numbers usually are for funerals. Pink, cream-coloured, orange, and blue flowers are rarely awarded any special meaning. Avoid yellow flower. Some white flowers should also be approached with caution. </li></ul></ul>
