Russian expert compared the US and the Customs Union economies
Dmitry Kondrashov, analyst, editor-in-chief of "The Baltic World” magazine: "It is important to talk about the market characteristics. The US does not integrate its market so deeply, but it has a huge market due to the spread of the English language. Hence, they can supply smart products and so on. What matters is the qualitative characteristics of the market, a single ownership zone, unified approach to business - all of this should exist. The formula 3+1 is flawed, it does not do any good to anyone actually, because inside there is also an internal competition. Ukraine is a competitor, in different groups of goods, with Belarus, Kazakhstan and Russia."
