I am researching the shipping problems from China and USA to Russia. In the past we have not been able to ship to Russia by any courier like UPS, DHL etc.. Please tell us what you understand about this problem.
We have designed a Microcomputer Engineering Kit that is used by some Universities in USA. We have sold 800 of them and have orders for 400 more. They would cost $50 US each at Educational Discount.
See: the Kit HERE:
