Thanks peter xyz,

Yes, here in Russia local tax schedule is much more bearable: 0% estate tax and flat 13% on dividends and capital gains. Unfortunately, one cannot buy US stocks via local brokers, no such thing as ADRs here.

It seems, to buy stock of specific companies one has no other option but to use a US brokerage.
