Diamond Mining OK'd in New Russian Field: Local authorities in Russia's far northern region of Arkhangelsk have given their seal of approval to plans to develop a vast new diamond field north of the Arctic Circle, Itar-Tass news agency reported. Geologists say the Lomonosov diamond field, discovered seven years ago, could produce one-tenth of the world's rough diamond output when it is fully operational.

Swindled home buyers are legion in the fledgling Russian real estate market, so it was something of a surprise when the latest victims of failed development schemes discovered that reputable realty agents were huddling over how to come to their rescue. Five established realty firms that built custom apartment projects have collapsed in as many months in this czarist-era capital, leaving nearly 2,000 would-be buyers somewhere short of a new threshold.

Russian Connection: At last weekend's summit between President Clinton and Russian President Boris N. Yeltsin, the two leaders referred to their relationship as a "partnership." Vitaly Votolevsky hopes that Orange County developers and real estate investors will take that to heart. The Russian developer, contractor and tourism promoter concluded a one-month stay Tuesday in Orange County.

In the cavernous lobby of the 89-year-old Khudozhestvenny cinema at the head of historic Arbat Street, plush crimson theater chairs nest in rows across the marble floor like dominoes as they await installation. Brass-edged glass ticket booths and a state-of-the-art sound system are the next investments planned at the 600-seat cinema--one of only a handful in Moscow drawing enough moviegoers to bankroll its own floor-to-ceiling renovation.

Tatyana Ivashentseva and Sergei Pleshkov spent childhood summers swimming and hunting for mushrooms together at their parents' dachas, which face each other across a narrow dirt road here. Like the other country cottages in this community 30 miles west of Moscow, theirs were the same size, the same shape and bore scars of the same winters. Both were built in 1957, when the nearby MIG fighter plane factory distributed small garden plots to its employees.

The Russian government announced Monday that it has hired Goldman, Sachs & Co., the Wall Street investment banking firm, to help attract the foreign capital it needs to rebuild its collapsing economy. The move is intended both to reassure Western investors nervous about putting money into a country in the midst of such a huge political and economic transformation and to ensure that the needs of foreign capital are taken into account in the government's policy-making at the highest level.

Who would have thought 10 years ago that RAND, a leading player in the Cold War game of mutually assured destruction, would one day announce a cooperative agreement with Moscow? Not Alexander N. Shokhin, Russia's deputy prime minister, who signed the document Friday at the think tank where planners once helped the Air Force work out tactics and strategy for nuclear war with the Soviet Union. "RAND was, in the Brezhnev era of stagnation, our enemy, the enemy of Soviet society," he said.

As a private helicopter of Russia's Lukoil swooped low over the Dada Gorgud drilling platform, the proprietary air among Lukoil's executives would hardly seem a source of comfort for Azerbaijani owners of the great oil wealth gushing up from the Caspian Sea. But the Russian oil giant's expanding investments in the newly independent "near abroad" signal a change in Moscow's strategy for cashing in on its former colonies' natural bounty.

Russia, Kazakhstan and Oman said Friday that they signed an agreement with eight oil companies that will finance a $2-billion pipeline from the oil-rich Caspian region, opening the way for construction to start early next year. Chevron Corp. and Atlantic Richfield Co. and AO Lukoil Holding of Russia are among the companies that agreed to finance the 900-mile pipeline to carry oil from western Kazakhstan to the Black Sea port of Novorossiisk.
