The purpose of this paper is to look into state ownership and political support as two factors that influence the process of internationalization of Russian MNEs.
The authors observe the theory and empirical evidence behind the phenomenon.
The authors find that state ownership and governmental political support are two mechanisms of the transformation of state-owned enterprises (SOEs) to MNEs in Russia.
The topic is not covered sufficiently in the literature. The paper is based on the recent findings by the paper co-authors.
