Government of Russia registration of independent 
entrepreneurs) in the name of Mrs. Novikova. 
 
4. Mr. Novikov and Mrs. Novikova have run a number of 
small business operations from their home.  Currently, 
they are supplying hunting supplies and shooting 
optics for sporting goods stores in Moscow.  They plan 
to incorporate the business under the name of 
"Hunted," and are arranging for vendor space in a 
shopping mall in Moscow.  Currently all business is 
conducted from the couple's apartment, with additional 
storage space in a secure warehouse owned by a friend 
of Mr. Novikov.  ECO Pearce requested copies of the 
incorporation documents once finalized, and further 
requested to see the facilities of the ultimate 
reseller.

Internet, from the website www.okular.ru.

counter of the store.  The store is protected by the 
shopping center's security department, which includes

former military bunker.  Mr. Novikov is aware of both 
U.S. and Russian export controls, and no products will
