It’s very rare that international sanctions conferences are held in a
city that is likely to be a major target of those sanctions, but that’s
how tomorrow’s planned London conference on Russia is expected to go.

opposed to sanctions on Russia because of fear that it would unduly harm
London, an investment haven for many Russians.
Cameron angrily condemned the upcoming Crimean referendum as “illegal and illegitimate,” and says
it is vital to show Britain’s opposition to it, no matter how much
damage sanctions and asset seizures do to the London economy.
