Russia's economic policy is State Capitalism. Keynesian economics. Major government involvement in the economy. All that jazz. There is practically no economic freedom in Russia. The government chases all the capital away because the owners of the capital are afraid of the government, which is highly reactionary and unpredictable.
So you have pretty much all the factors that are against what every barometer would actually consider to be a "free economy".
Don`t make stuff up. You`re going to have a bad time.
