All in all

If you are
planning to sell to Russia, companies already importing products
similar or complimentary to yours are obviously your best prospects.
What I can
offer you is selecting from this customs database current active importers of a product you are interested in.
You can then market to them directly.
Or if you prefere, I can organize the marketing for you:
- compile the list
- put together and mail a package with an introductory letter and
promotional material from your company addressed to the appropriate
- organize follow up calls to get a feeling
of their reaction and discuss whatever questions they may have
- if required organize your visit for face to face negotiations.
