UPDATE 2-Putin tells Russian businessmen to bring their assets back home

Comments (1)

What is Mr. Putin and his government supposed to do, in order to have these Crimea-related sanctions lifted?

If the answer is that Russia must return the recently annexed territory to Ukraine, that just isn’t going to happen.

The US and the EU may have have painted themselves into a corner.

Putin is very clever, he is playing the patriotic card, it’s an old trick, but it just might work.
