Olivier Laurent: I don't agree at all with the European policy concerning Kaliningrad. Kaliningrad is an unique chance for both Russia and the European Union to have a "zone franche."

I would like to thank all of you who are responsible for this online newspaper. Thank to Pravda, I'm more familiar with Russia, her policy around the world and her unique point of views on several matters. You are doing a great job.

Anyway as a strong supporter of the European project, I don't agree at all with the European policy concerning Kaliningrad. Kaliningrad is an unique chance for both Russia and the European Union to have a "zone franche." Several goods from both strategic partners could be traded over this "enclave". It could a major step towards more understanding and partnerships between us. As it used to be between Western European states, one day a free market will lead naturally to the free movement of citizens all over Europe. borders are artificial, not people.

From Belgium, Olivier Laurent
