Belarus, early entrepreneurship and U.S. visa

Russell was born in Belarus and studied in an ordinary school. His parents always worked hard — his father drove cargo all over Eastern Europe, and a mother that helped him with the business side of things. He was bright in school and was involved in different activities — competitions, events, etc. that contributed to shaping his personality and leadership.

Russell believes that business is the best check for real friendship. Doing business together with friends shows their character from different situations that arise. Together they founded their own construction company and worked quite successfully together.

Starting a telecom construction business in America

After some years, they lost some of their inspiration and motivation, and his partners decided to switch to something else. They did a lot of research and understood that construction for telecommunication companies is in high demand and a potential for building the business of their dreams. So they started a company for telecommunication technologies and it seems like they’ve hit a home run.

Hobbies, a new business in Eastern Europe and YBC

Russell doesn’t have too much free time. Especially now, when Rullex has had to struggle with the effects of COVID-19. Most of the equipment they use in construction is produced in China. It’s quite problematic nowadays to ship it to the United States, even for huge corporations.

Despite all the challenges in business, he always devotes time to his family, his wife and daughter, whom he moved from Belarus to America also.
