1 THE YAROSLAVL REGION Geographical Data The Yaroslavl Region is located in the northern half of the European part of the Russian Federation in the centre of the East European Plain and borders on the Vladimir, the Vologda, the Ivanovo, the Kostroma, the Moscow and the Tver Regions. The Volga River flows across the territory of the Yaroslavl Region connecting the coastal areas of 5 seas: the Baltic Sea, the White Sea, the Caspian Sea, the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov. The administrative centre of the Yaroslavl Region is the City of Yaroslavl, located 282 km. (approx. 175 miles) north-east of Moscow. With a total area of 36 400 km2 (8,994,440 acres) the Yaroslavl Region includes three City Counties (Yaroslavl, Rybinsk, Pereslavl-Zalessky), 17 Municipal Districts and 92 urban and rural settlements. Climate The Yaroslavl Region is located in the continental-temperate climatic zone. The average long-term temperature in January is –11.2°C (11.84°F); in July -+17.5°C (63.5°F). The average annual precipitation is 520–690 mm. The growing season is 150–170 days. Population In comparison with other parts of Russia the Yaroslavl Region is rather densely populated. The total population as of July 1, 2006 is 1,322,700, 81.5 % of which is urban and 18.5 % - rural. The density of population is 36.5 persons per km2. The unemployment rate is 1.78 %. The average wage-salary level in the first six months of 2006 was estimated at 8,380 roubles. HISTORY The Yaroslavl Region is one of the most ancient parts of Russian State. The earliest settlements on its territory date back to the 1 millennium B.C. As a result of Slavic colonization, in the IX – Xth centuries A.D. these lands became part of Old Russian State, known as Kievan Rus, with Kiev as the capital. Tradition has it that Yaroslavl was founded in 1010 by Prince Yaroslav-the-Wise to become the first fortress on the Volga River in order to defend Rostov-the-Great, the centre of North-Eastern Rus. According to the legend incorporated into the modern coats of arms both of Yaroslavl and the Yaroslavl Region, the mighty prince subdued the local pagan inhabitants by killing their sacred animal, a she-bear, in a hand-to-hand combat. In the XI-XIIth centuries the Yaroslavl lands were part of the Rostov-Souzdal Principality. In 1218 Yaroslavl became the administrative centre of an independent principality which was incorporated into a centralized Russian State in 1463. In the XVI-XVIIth centuries Yaroslavl, as an important centre of crafts as well as domestic and international trade, eventually became a major transit point on a very important trade route connecting Moscow with Western and Oriental countries. It was in this period that linen manufacturing, leather processing, production of salt, ceramics and blacksmith's trades were started and very actively developed in Yaroslavl which was then second only to Moscow in size and population. In 1612 during the Polish-Lithuanian invasion and occupation of Moscow Yaroslavl for six months served as the capital of Russian State and the base for raising 2 the famous militia commanded by commoner Kuzma Minin and Prince Dmitry Pozharsky. It was from Yaroslavl that the militia started off to liberate Moscow. The XVIIth century proved to be a golden age for the Yaroslavl lands as it was a period of rapid economic growth as well as the heyday of its cultural development. It was at this time that a specific style in architecture and painting known as "the Yaroslavl School" was established and many spectacular church buildings and ensembles were erected. The XVIIIth century witnessed a transition from handwork to manufactory production leading to a considerable industrial growth and prosperity of the land. For example, the year 1722 saw the foundation of Great Yaroslavl Textile Mill, now known as Krasny-Perekop Industrial Complex. A number of textile enterprises were started in Pereslavl-Zalessky, Rostov-the-Great and Uglich. In 1796 the Yaroslavl Province was established with Yaroslavl as the principal town. Besides the old towns of Rostov, Uglich and Romanov, the Yaroslavl Province included a number of newly established ones, such as Danilov, Myshkin and Rybinsk. This administrative system survived till the beginning of the XXth century. At the beginning of the XIXth century Yaroslavl had 12 factories and 69 plants. In 1838 A. F. Vakhromeyev, a merchant, launched a plant to produce white lead. Nowadays this enterprise, known as Russkiye-Krasky OJSC, is one of the leading manufacturers of varnish-and-paint materials. At the end of the XIXth century the Village of Konstantinovka in the vicinity of Yaroslavl became the construction site of the first Russian oil refining works producing mineral oils, the world-famous chemist D.M. Mendeleyev being among its founders. Seasonal work of all kinds, farming and cattle breeding flourished at that time too. The period of 1870-1898 saw the construction of a railway network connecting Yaroslavl with Moscow, Vologda, Kostroma and St. Petersburg. At the time Yaroslavl was 8 th among 103 major industrial centres of Russia in the number of jobs available. The existing name of the area, the Yaroslavl Region, appeared in 1936 when the Ivanovo Industrial Region was divided into two parts - the Ivanovo Region and the Yaroslavl Region. The existing boundaries were established in 1944 after the establishment of the Kostroma Region. Over the last decades the old textile, flax-processing, varnish-and-paint, meat and milk enterprises built at the end of the XIXth - the beginning of the XXth centuries, have been undergoing major reconstructions. At the same time industries based on the latest achievements of science and technology and quite new to this land have appeared and are rapidly developing too. The Yaroslavl Region of today boasts of highly developed multifield industries. Yaroslavl-based enterprises rank among the leading suppliers of diesel engines for heavyweight lorries and tractors, fuel equipment, automobile, agricultural and aircraft tyres, high-quality oil products, varnish-and-paint, asbestos, synthetic rubber and latex products, cable materials, electric engines, road-construction equipment, aviation instruments, tyre-building and woodworking machines, fishing trawlers, rescue tugs and high-speed launches, etc. The Yaroslavl Region has become the cradle of many new industries. It was here that the first Russian heavyweight and tip-up lorries, trolley-buses and Diesel engines were built. The first Russian automobile synthetic rubber tyre was also built in Yaroslavl. During World War II the Yaroslavl Region supplied the Army with more 3 than 120 kinds of military produce. The Yaroslavl Region is also the homeland of the unique Romanovskaya sheep breed. The towns of the Yaroslavl Region are extremely rich in various cultural traditions. In 1750 Yaroslavl became the birthplace of the first Russian professional theatre. The year 1786 saw the first publication of the first Russian provincial magazine called “Uyedinyonny Poshekhonets” (Lonely Poshekhoniye Dweller). One of the first and most important provincial newspapers of Russia, the Severny Kry, published in Yaroslavl at the end of the XIXth century was popular even beyond the boundaries of the Yaroslavl Province. In the XVIII – XIXth centuries a number of educational establishments were established in Yaroslavl, Demidov Judicial Lycée among them (1803). Part and parcel of Yaroslavl’s history and culture are the names of such great men as Fyodor Volkov, the founder of the first Russian theatre, Nikolay Nekrasov and Leonid Trefolev, famous Russian poets, Leonid Sobinov, a world-famous opera singer, Konstantin Ushinsky, the founder of Russian scientific pedagogics, and Valentina Tereshkova, the first woman-astronaut in history. INVESTMENT POLICY One of the main tasks of the regional investment policy is creating most favourable financial, economic, legislative and organizational conditions for investments. This policy is part of the of social and economic development strategy for the 2004 – 2007 period, entitled “From Survival to Prosperity” logically continuing the previous development programme implemented in 2000 - 2004. The most crucial part of this policy is adjusting the local legislation as well as active support of investment activities on the municipal level. Application of the regional legislation supporting and stimulating investments as well as protecting investors’ rights plays a considerable role in this work. With this purpose in mind, in 1996 the Legislative Assembly of the Yaroslavl Region was among the first in Russia to adopt the regional law entitled “State Support of Investments in the Yaroslavl Region.” The year 2005 witnessed the adoption of the law on “State Regulation of Investments in the Yaroslavl Region.” In the course of preparation of this law the local conditions of economic development and the federal legislative requirements had been taken into account and its scope had been expanded to include not only State support but also regulation of investments. The Regional Government provides all investors registered and implementing investment projects on the territory of the Yaroslavl Region are with the following support: Methodological, informational and organizational support at the stage of business planning and search for investors; State and legal guarantees at the stage of attracting investors; Subventions from the Regional State Budget, including reimbursement of banking credit interest payments, at the stage of attracting credit resources; Tax exemptions and investment tax credits as well as preferential rent rates for the usage of the tenements owned by the Yaroslavl Region at the stage of initial realization and product release. 4 The local legislation allows a simplified procedure of receiving State support, based on the “One-Window” principle. The efficiency of State support in 2006 is characterized by the following figures: for every 1 rouble of State support there were 21.9 roubles of off-budget capital investments into top-priority projects and 3.2 roubles were received as receipts into the Consolidated State Budget of the Yaroslavl Region and the appropriate Off-budget Funds. Since 2002 the Regional Budget has included a special Investment Programme to finance the most important infrastructure and social projects. Another area of the regional investment policy has always been creating a favourable investment climate and developing the local infrastructure. Special attention is paid to the development of the local transportation infrastructure. Among the top-priority projects is the construction of a new highway bridge across the Volga River within the Yaroslavl city limits which will help to relieve the busy traffic in the city centre. The total cost of the project is $ 280,000,000. Tunoshna International Airport allowing domestic and international airlines to carry out goods transportation is undergoing a major reconstruction. The investments planned for 2006 - 2010 will total more than $ 30,000,000. Preparation for construction of a new trading complex featuring an automobile terminal and a logistic centre at the entrance to Yaroslavl is under way. The amount of investments for the 1st stage of construction will total $ 50,000,000. Of special interest is the project aiming at redirecting the flow of goods oriented to the north-east, north and north-west of Russia into the Yaroslavl Region and founding a wholesale distribution centre on the basis of the advantages offered by the regional well-developed transportation infrastructure featuring an international airport, a number of river ports, railway and highway networks and a highly qualified labour force as well as good training facilities. Quite important is the development of market infrastructure for small and medium-scale private business. In order to provide private entrepreneurs with an easier access to information resources and consulting services in legal, economic and financial matters 10 development centres have been set and already functioning in the towns of the Yaroslavl Region All that, no doubt, helps to create of a very positive investment image of the Yaroslavl Region and attract additional investments. Such foreign companies as Eastman Kodak, Bertelsmann Distribution GmbH, Baltic Beverages AB, and Metro Cash & Carry have already become investors in the Yaroslavl Region while many others, such as MDS Aero Support Corp., Zanussi, Electrolux, Sasib, Hauni, Siemens, Alcatel, Cisco, Skanska, Mitsui & Co. Ltd, Thyssen Reinstahl Technik GmbH, Simmer, «Snecma Moteurs», «Altadis S.A.», «Du Pont», «Renault Тrucks», «Real» etc. are cooperating with many local enterprises. Another major project being realized in the Yaroslavl Region is reconstruction of Slavneft-Yaroslavnefteorgsintez OJSC. In the course of its implementation an absolutely new oil refining technology providing a much higher quality of produce has been worked out. In order to finance the 2nd stage of the project a more than $ 200,000,000 banking credit was received from the International Cooperation and Development Bank of Japan. The total investments in the project will amount to more than $ 500,000,000. A very active participant in investment projects is Rybinsk-based Saturn Research-and-Production Complex OJSC, formerly known as Rybinskiye Motory. This 5 company was among the first to realize a successful project of aircraft engine testing benches reconstruction. At present the company is involved in a joint project with French Snecma Moteurs Corporation to develop and produce turbofan engines for all modifications of a new Russian Regional Jet. The newest and well tested technologies used in the engine guarantee optimal economic conditions of its use by commercial airlines. Snecma Moteurs is planning to invest in this project a total of 350,000,000 EUR. Since 1997 Swedish Baltic Beverages AB Company has been involved in a stage- by-stage reconstruction of locally based Yarpivo Brewery OJSC. The total investments in the project are $160,000,000. The Moscow Government has been actively involved in housing and hotel construction in the towns of the Yaroslavl Region. The total off-budget investments in the housing of Yaroslavl and Rybinsk are estimated at 4,000,000,000 roubles. This is by far the largest housing project of the Moscow Government outside Moscow. Besides, construction of European quality hotels is under way in the towns of the Yaroslavl Region included in the famous Golden Ring of Russia Tourist Route which will help to develop the existing tourist industry infrastructure. The total amount of investments in the project is about 2,000,000,000 roubles. As part of this development programme The Moskovsky Trakt Hotel was completed in Rostov-the-Great in December 2005. The successful implementation of this project has attracted more investors into the Yaroslavl Region. November 2004 saw the opening of the Ring Premier Hotel, the first 4-star hotel in the Yaroslavl Region. The co-investors of this $ 18,000,000 project were locally based Bahlkanskaya Zvezda CJSC and its Indian partner - DTE Exports Private Ltd. Investments in Fixed Capital (milliard roubles) 45 42,5 40 33 35 30 26,8 25 17,9 20 13,5 13,8 15 10 8 5 0 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 About 33.5% of all investments in fixed capital were allocated for manufacturing and 32.5% for transport and communications. About 30% of the investments came from the local companies’ own funds. Foreign investments in 2005 totaled $ 42,500,000. Among the major motivating factors for Russian and foreign private investors is their confidence in the economic policy of the Regional Government and its ability to 6 settle accounts on its promissory notes. That’s why creating an attractive investment image of the Yaroslavl Region remains the main tool of the Regional Government’s policy. According to a survey conducted by Expert Rating Agency-AK&M Consortium, in 2005 the Yaroslavl Region confirmed the top A Credit Rating Class denoting a “High Level of Reliability with Stable Prospects.” The consistent investment policy realized by the Regional Government has favourably influenced the investment climate of the Yaroslavl Region. In 2005-2006 the Yaroslavl Region took the second place in the competition «For the Best Legislative Conditions for investment» and the second place in the competition «For High Efficiency in Regional Management». In terms of potential for investments, the Yaroslavl Region occupies the 35th position belonging to the category of regions with a highly flexible investment climate and there is a good chance for it to move upward on the investment attractiveness rating scale. Active support of development processes allows the State Budget of the Yaroslavl Region to receive additional tax payments, to preserve the existing jobs and create new ones.

In production volume of GRO the Yaroslavl Region has continually been 3d or 4th among the leading regions of Central Federal District (CFD). The regional economics is focused largely on goods manufacturing which is shown by the aggregative GRO structure. More than 50% of the GRO is contributed by the manufacturing sector. (See the figure below). At that, industry provides about 40% of gross added value. That’s why it is the growth rate in the manufacturing sector that affects the GRO growth the most. At the same time the last few years have seen a marked structural shift in favour of a more dynamic development of the services sector. In the near future the advancing growth rate in this sector will be affecting the GRO growth increasingly.

Small-Scale Private Enterprises Small-scale private enterprises have already become an inseparable part of regional economy and an important factor of social and political stability. Development of small-scale private enterprises helps to strengthen the competitiveness of economy, facilitate its structural reorganization, involve unengaged labour force in different kinds of business activities, make the population more socially and economically active and improve the general standards of living in this country. The Yaroslavl Region has a system of State support and development of small- scale private enterprises, including a base of legal rules and standard acts helping to create favourable conditions for small-scale private business, an appropriate Regional Government structure realizing regional policy as well as an infrastructure to support small-scale private business. Noteworthy are regular negotiations carried out between the regional authorities and local business community representatives concerning matters of small-scale business development, including working out and realization of appropriate normative and legal acts. 12 The main instrument of implementing State policy in this area is State programmes aimed at supporting small-scale private business. In 2006 the Yaroslavl Region is realizing: A special programme of helping small-scale private enterprises; A special programme of helping small-scale private industrial through developing industrial cooperation. The regional policy includes financial, credit and material support of small-scale private enterprises along the following lines: State reimbursement of interest payments for banking credits granted to realize business projects; State property leasing and renting to small-scale private enterprises on competitive basis, with preference given to those developing their own production schemes and services.

The total number of local historical and cultural monuments is over 5000, the most ancient of them being Pereslavl-Zalessky Saviour-Transfiguration Cathedral erected in 1152. Dating back to the XV–XVIth centuries are such architectural monuments as Assumption Cathedral in the Rostov Kremlin, Appanage Princes’ Chambers in the Uglich Kremlin, Yaroslavl Saviour-Transfiguration Cathedral, Rostov Abraham’s Monastery, Pereslavl-Zalessky Nikitsky and Trinity-Danilov Monasteries and many others. Lots of monuments that the Yaroslavl Region boasts of are real masterpieces of the XVIIth-century architecture. This period known as “Yaroslavl Renaissance” saw the construction of such ecclesiastical buildings as the Church of St. John-the-Baptizer with its spectacular frescos second to none in the number of plots depicted, the Korovniky Temple Ensemble, the Church of St. Elijah-the-Prophet, a fine specimen of the famous Yaroslavl School of architecture and many others. Each of the Yaroslavl Region’s historic towns has its own unique character manifested in rather original festivals which attract lots of visitors from all over the world. Among such cultural events are Rostov European Cultural Heritage and the Winter Fairy-Tale Festivals, Uglich Children’s Prince Dmitry Festival, Myshkin Mouse and Valenki Festivals, Pereslavl-Zalessky Peter-the-Great’s Assemblies, Rybinsk Merchant Day to name just a few. Theatres are very popular in the Yaroslavl Region. There are more than 20 theatres of which 5 are professional located locally. Among them is the first Russian national theatre – the Yaroslavl Academic Drama Theatre named after F.G. Volkov 16 founded in 1750, the Yaroslavl Young Spectator’s Theatre and the Yaroslavl Puppet Theatre. The cultural life of Yaroslavl is also ornamented by organ concerts in the Regional Philharmonic Society Hall. Tourist industry has been developing in the Yaroslavl Region for about 100 years. Steam boat communications along the Volga River in the XIX th century eventually led to an influx of tourists. To satisfy the tourists’ needs in excursions the Young Life Society was established and in 1909 the first Russian tourist magazine “Russian Sightseer” was published in Yaroslavl, as well as numerous guide-books. Nowadays more than 140 tourist agencies function in the Yaroslavl Region. The number of tourists is constantly increasing. In 2006 the Yaroslavl Region was visited by more than 800,000 tourists including about 250,000 foreign visitors from France, Germany, the USA, Italy, Great Britain, the Netherlands and other countries. Various types of cultural tourism, such as visiting museums, attending special events and exploring ethnographic aspects of Central Russia are developing rapidly. Business and congress tourism are also on the increase. The Yaroslavl Region provides all the services necessary to organize national and international events of all levels. The construction of the multi-purpose cultural-sports “Arena-2000 Locomotive” Complex and the Dyomino Skiing Sports Centre as well as victories of the local sport teams has given impetus to sports tourism into the Yaroslavl Region. More and more entertainment and recreation facilities, such as casinos, bowling and billiards clubs, arcades and fitness centres are being launched in the Yaroslavl Region at present. Educational, recreational, ecological and health-improving tourism are on the increase too and the scope of tour offers and applications for such tours is broadening. The last few years have also seen the establishment of Alpine and cross-country skiing tracks facilities offering high quality services and stimulating development of sports parks capable of organizing both winter and summer entertainments. Yachting is among the most rapidly developing local sports. Facilities for technical maintenance and refuelling of river vessels are being established in Yaroslavl and other Volga towns. A number of cutters and a small motor-ship are available for rent. Among the most popular kinds of recreation is the so called “quiet hunting after the gifts of nature” – picking mushrooms, berries and herbs. Over the last years the local tourist infrastructure has been considerably developed. At the tourists’ disposal are more than 40 hotels and an extensive network of cafes and restaurants. Yaroslavl alone has more than 100 cafes and restaurants catering for Russian, European, Caucasian, Chinese and Japanese cuisine. The roadside service system along the Moscow-Kholmogory Federal Motorway featuring petrol stations, cafes, telephones and hotels is rapidly developing. The rapid growth of tourist industry has attracted investments in the hotel network development. At the moment more than 15 hotels are being designed or already under construction in the Yaroslavl Region. Tourist attractiveness of the Yaroslavl Region is enhanced by the local tourist agencies’ participation in international exhibitions, publication of tourist guides and Internet advertising. 17 INTERNATIONAL AND EXTERNAL ECONOMIC COOPERATION International Cooperation Nowadays regions themselves act as principals to important international contracts and compete with each other for a special role on a global scale. The Yaroslavl Region, as well as its towns, has become involved in international cooperation chiefly to raise its competitive capacity in foreign markets and strengthen its national and international positions on the basis of its various potentialities of partnership with foreign countries, regions, organizations, enterprises and individuals. The Yaroslavl Region has concluded 29 contracts on trade-and-economic and cultural cooperation with 14 foreign countries. The strongest business and cultural relations have been established with such CIS countries as the Republic of Belarus, the Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Kirghizia. Our major European partners are Germany and the UK as well as such Baltic countries as Lithuania, Estonia and Poland while in the Asian-Pacific region we cooperate with Vietnam and China. In the future these friendly ties based on signed agreements and protocols will be broadened and strengthened. Another important area of the Yaroslavl Region’s international policy has been cooperation with international organizations within the framework of EU and EBRD (European Bank for Reconstruction and Development) programmes in the fields of economic, cultural and humanitarian relations. The main focus of cooperation with the European Union has been our participation in the ТАСIS projects. Since 1991 more than 20 projects in such fields as agriculture, food processing industry, manufacturing and education system have been realized. We are in constant contact with our foreign partners primarily through the RF Embassies and Consulates as well as through Federal Ministries Representatives and RF Chambers of Trade and Commerce located abroad. The Yaroslavl Region has been very actively developing partnership relations with foreign twin cities. For example, with the help of the British Council and the UK Embassy Yaroslavl became the first Russian city to organize and launch English House and in 2003 with the help of our French partners - Yaroslavl-Poitiers Friendship House. The Yaroslavl Region has also been hosting a very successful Russian-German partnership project, Hessen Land - Yaroslavl Region Bureau for Cooperation. The effectiveness of this cooperation has become a model for many Russian regions and German lands. The job of the local authorities in this work is to create the necessary conditions for a full-rights partnership. The Yaroslavl Region has all the necessary potentialities for expanding international-interregional cooperation and strengthening the atmosphere of neighbourliness and partnership. External Trade The Yaroslavl Region has a great potential for developing external ties – a most advantageous geographical and transport position, a well-developed industry and infrastructure and a complex programme of social and economic development worked out by the Regional Government. Its central element is investment policy. All that makes the Yaroslavl Region very attractive to cooperate with. In the situation when the regions’ rights to conduct external economic activities are extended, among the main objectives of the regional authorities is getting the local 18 companies involved in external economic activities, helping and supporting them in finding new promising international markets and stimulating progressive developments in the commodity structure of local exports and imports. Exports have traditionally been one of the most important areas of external economic activities of the Yaroslavl Region. In order to help the local companies to find new external markets the Regional Government works in intergovernmental committees on trade and economic cooperation, through its Trade Delegates abroad and by conducting presentations of the Yaroslavl Region abroad and in the Embassies of foreign countries as well as by means of participating in exhibitions. Among the tools of supporting the local export potentialities are the Regional Representatives in the following countries: the Republic of Belarus, Lithuania, Estonia, Poland and Uzbekistan. The year 1999 saw the establishment of the Advisory Council attached to the Governor’s Administration. Its purpose is to develop and perfect the external links of the Yaroslavl Region and facilitate external trade traffic. The Yaroslavl Region is constantly broadening its trade and economic ties with the CIS and other foreign countries, Foreign Trade Turnover The Yaroslavl Region has been actively involved in external trade. It has trade partners in 93 countries. In 2006 more than 540 local companies participated in foreign trade. The yearly commodity turnover in 2005 amounted to $ 878,100,000. Export orientation of the local foreign trade leads to a positive balance of the Region’s trade turnover. Most of the foreign trade turnover is conducted with CIS countries. For example in 2006 their share was 57.5 %. The share of other foreign countries in the foreign trade turnover of the Yaroslavl Region is 42.5 %. The main trade partners are the Republic of Belarus, the Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Germany and Poland. The Republic of Belarus with a 30% share of the local external trade turnover is a major consumer of the goods produced in the Yaroslavl Region. Exports The companies of the Yaroslavl Region export their produce to 77 countries. Our most significant partners are the Republic of Belarus, the Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Poland and India. The biggest and still increasing share of exports is machinery - 59.4%. Another 26.8% of export volume is the produce of the local petrochemical complex. Exports of timber, food products and raw foodstuffs have been on the increase too. Imports The companies of the Yaroslavl Region import their produce from 66 countries. The biggest import volumes are delivered from the Republic of Belarus, the Ukraine, Germany, Japan and Italy. The Yaroslavl Region imports machinery (50.6%), foodstuffs and raw stuffs (13.4%), petrochemical produce (14.2%). The positive balance of the external trade turnover has recently increased due to the rapidly growing exports which is conclusive evidence that the external trade of the Yaroslavl Region is export-oriented. 19 THE REGIONAL ADMINISTRATION Sovetskaya Ploshchad 3, Yaroaslavl, Russia, 150000 (150000, Россия, Ярославль, Советская пл., 3) Tel: (4852)728128 Fax: (4852)328414 http:// www.adm.yar.ru CОNTA POSITION INFORMATION Теl.: (4852) 72 8128 Anatoly I.
