Russia has gone through significant changes since the collapse of the Soviet Union, moving from a centrally planned economy towards a more market-based system. Both economic reform and economic growth have stalled in recent years, however, the country remains a predominantly statist economy with a high concentration of wealth. The protection of property rights in Russia is still after privatising many sectors and the country continues to interfere in the free operation of the private sector.
