We will end up giving Crimea to Russia and possibly the eastern Ukraine. I don't know how this will effect BP. One thing I do know is don't #$%$ off our queen Michelle, People raised on the south side of Chicago are street fighters.
Looks like there is some sort of compromise being worked out by Germany which will help...but in the end I doubt the market will react too negatively...things played out exactly like one could have expected on Friday...and keep in mind that BP sold TNK-BP and is left with an equity method investment in Rossenet which would appear to be pretty safe. Countering any possible negative impact will be the rise in oil prices which will help BP.
