This article focuses on Western investments in Russia. Moscow investment insiders like to joke that when the big Western players start flooding in, it's a sure sign the market's about to crash. If there is any truth to that joke, now would be a good time to cut and run. The last few months have seen many of the biggest names in global investments announce new ventures into Russia, even as the news from Moscow seems increasingly dark. On top of arrested executives and shuttered banks, the recent bloodbath in North Ossetia, indicating rising tension in the Caucasus, hardly makes Russia seem a model of stability. The latest Western invasion of Russia started with Deutsche Banks investment in UFG, one of a handful of well-managed local investment banks-often, as in UFG's case, with foreign management-that grew up in the absence of serious Western competition throughout most of the 1990s.
