| A merger between Russian and foreign companies during
Russia's integration into the world economy is inevitable, said Deputy
Speaker of the State Duma Vladimir
Lukin in an interview to the RIA Novosti agency.
"When a new partner appears the world arena, problems always occur: there
is always some inferiority complex, there are always problems with existing
market proportions, money flows and the system of current personal relations
- this problem should somehow be transformed and changed. I think this
is just a matter of time," said Lukin.
"I would say that this problem exists partially due to the lack
of our own experience when we sometimes push against the existing market
structure, like a bear in a china shop. This happens sometimes, but this
is an illness of growth, an illness of youth. I think that these problems
will gradually disappear, as today the most progressive Russian companies
are finding their place on the world market, are respected and their opinion
is duly considered," noted the Deputy Speaker of the State Duma.
According to Lukin, "a merger between our companies and foreign companies
is inevitable, as this is an objective trend of the modern world."
Lukin thinks that "our consumer will only profit from the fact that
our companies will depend not only on our government, but also on other
