  • This Wall Street Journal op-ed piece written by the German free market insitute calls for free trade with Russia
  • The author argues the west is to blame for not developing a free trade agreement between the EU and Russia
  • The author ignores one of the key elements of any free market system – the rule of law which is non-existing in Russia. Transparency International which analyzes corruption puts Russia at the bottom of the list
  • The author’s intentions are good in theory, but unrealistic in practice if Russia continues to be a bully who disregards international laws
