Eastern EU as the next Emerging/Developing Market?

I'm currently a student at a Canadian non-target doing an undergrad business degree. As it's pretty hard to get a good offer for NYC/Toronto/LA from my university, I was hoping to use my native fluency in Ukrainian and Russian (Polish is workable as well) and my Canadian education and citizenship to land a coverage/EM role in EMEA. Logically, there should be lots of investment potential in post-war Ukraine and russia (providing the rashki don't become the next North Korea-like pariah state). As a non-target, I'm casting a broad net here - anything from IB coverage groups to PE/HF/VCs investing in EM - beggars can't be choosers.

  • How realistic is this? If it is,
  • Which companies are/would be most active in this space?
  • Which companies should I be looking at?

Any other advice/insights would be appreciated.
