Basically if you have a Russian player in your system and want him to play you are going to have to pay more than their market value to get them here. If the GM's are not willing to pay more for these players then the can say "da sveedonya".
Pretty much hit the nail on the head. Plus they (the players) are going to make more money in Mother Russia than here with the tax situation, 13% in Russia as opposed to 30-40% in the States. I have hope he will be back, but I have a feeling he's asking for waay to much money right now.
