A Chinese tourist poses for a photo in front of a statue of Lenin in the eastern Russian city of Vladivostok Wednesday, Sept. 5, 2012.

Russia has splashed $20 billion preparing for the summit in Vladivostok, its largest but long-neglected Pacific port, as part of a grand plan to become a bigger player on Asian markets.
