1. No Nord-Stream pipeline.
I think I can safely say the Nordstream will be ready at term...
It's a business- and energy matter!
2. No Sochi Olimpics 2014.
Well...they just had a big party in Peking....now taking away
the games from Russia would be hypocrisy at best!(At least Russia HAS votings actually)
3. Farewell to G8 and WTO.
Russia is hardly a minor business player. G8 and WTO are non-political but business/economic organizations...
4. Deep economic crisis in Russia starting soon, maybe already 2009 ?
Worse than in the current crisis in the US or Europe???
