#kiev financial sector is running from Rusland as fast as possible

the Geneva agreement is a paper of which untill now nothing has been put in place

and even if that has been the case than there is still Crimea

and the total new way in which we see Russia (not longer as a peaceful partner but a possible enemy)

"Officials from the Treasury Department and the National Security Council met in Washington with mutual-fund and hedge-fund managers, according to a person who attended. Their comments sent a message that more sanctions are on the way and that investors, if they were concerned about the impact, should manage that risk, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the discussions weren’t public.

 

The meeting, convened a week before talks with Russia in Geneva that ended yesterday, left managers grappling with the question of whether the government intended to follow through, or was trying to trigger asset sales through the threat of sanctions, said the person. Former administration officials have said forcing Russia out of global financial markets is the strongest tool President Barack Obama has at his disposal in trying to defuse the ongoing crisis between Russia and Ukraine.

 

“A lot of firms on the buy side have cut their exposure to Russia,” Jack Deino, the head of emerging-market debt at Atlanta-based Invesco Ltd., said in an interview, talking about the industry in general.

and after the financial crisis and with all the new international norms about exposure to risk and the safeguards you have to built in, would you risk your company or funds on investments in Russia (and having to set aside as money as you have invested in case that it is being blocked)

Russia : from golden opportunity to enormous risk in one month time
