European sanctions against Moscow could be a cause for concern for UK businesses who trade with Russia. FRANCE 24 dropped in on City traders and luxury shopkeepers to find out what is at risk for them.

Threats of EU sanctions following Russia’s move to make Crimea part of its territory, as well as retaliatory measures from the Kremlin, could affect London’s stock markets, which list around 70 companies.

However, City traders appeared confident that the effects from sanctions on the Russian economy will be minimal.

British luxury shops, whose third biggest market is Russia, have expressed concern over the diplomatic sparring. But for now, business has not been hurt.
