Angry Birds-maker Rovio is collaborating with Russian online retail company Internet Retail Solution (IRSOL) in Russia to promote Angry Birds merchandise in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). Angry Birds products are already available in IRSOL’s Bambiniya.ru, and will soon be coming to offline retail.

Claes Kalborg (Senior VP, Licensing, Rovio):  We have been looking for a partner in Russia for several months. This is a very important market for us as it already has the largest Internet audience in Europe.
