The growing importance of Outward Foreign Investments (OFDI) from emerging markets has broken the traditional pattern of the advanced economies conducting FDI flows towards developing or low-income countries. The unprecedented expansion of multinational companies (MNCs) from so-called BRIC countries has received a great deal of attention in the international business literature during recent years. Our paper provides an insight into the universe of Russian multinationals, by taking stock of different perspectives on the issue as it stands in many recent working papers or articles published in the literature. We shall explore this perspectives by answering comprehensively questions like “Who are, When, Why and How are expanding nowadays multinationals from Russia?” These questions were carefully elaborated in order to enable us to go through the most important approaches that have been made on the issue in the past years.
