You might have noticed, for example, that SoftDev's offices are very nice on the inside, but quite shabby on the outside. And you might have noticed that no one was driving you around in a late model luxury automobile.

There's a reason for this. If it looked like they had any money, they'd soon find the Russian mob (or Russian police) knocking on their doors, demanding payoffs.

Corruption seems to be, for now, an inherent part of Russian life. Better to not look like a good target.
