Regulation of Political Funding Under Election Laws of the Russian Federation
This paper is an overview of important considerations for further refining of regulation of political funding under election laws of the Russian Federation as of April 1999. This analysis seeks to emphasize practical elements rather than absolute ideals. A search for perfection can sometimes defeat accomplishment of the good and sufficient, especially in this policy area. The goal of regulation of political finance should be to encourage fair and vigorous competition among political participants within a transparent political funding system.
