Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE: WMT), an American public corporation that runs a chain of large, discount department stores, is cherishing an idea to ooze into the Russian market.
First of all, Wal-Mart has appointed an analyst to explore growth opportunities in Russia and neighboring markets.

The joint venture may involve a great number of obstacles, such as local competition, infrastructure, logistics and securing partnerships. It may also face regulations fixed by the Russian government.
