China is also isolated itself from Russia recent move
Vladimir Putin appears to have thoroughly dug in his heels over his bid to annex Crimea as a part of Russia. He seems determined to proceed with the referendum scheduled for this Sunday. The outcome of that vote is not in much doubt. The world's major nations are on record with varying degrees of forcefulness as saying that it is a violation of international law and that they will not recognize the results. Today's New York Times has two interesting and I think generally convincing articles that demonstrate how Putin is becoming alienated from two nations that have generally been his allies, Germany and China.
Also Russia market down 17% since the move. If you are play for a "walk away Rusia", position yourself today.
