As the Russian Riveria resort of Sochi gears up for the Winter Olympics Business Scotland this week looks at Scotland's special relationship with the country. We share a patron saint and outside Scotland - we're told - there were more Burns suppers in Russia last weekend than anywhere else in the world. Gillian Marles hears from Scots who've become successful in the Russian market and finds out how to wrestle the rouble from Russian visitors to Scotland.
