Russian President Vladimir Putin

For the Irish living in Moscow, there is some disappointment that the Emerald Ball, a highlight of the ex-pat calendar which takes place close to St Patrick’s Day, has been called off. But by far the bigger emotion among them and the wider population in the Russian capital is shock at President Vladimir Putin’s recent actions.

That’s according to Irishman Chris Weafer, a former head of research at Irish Life who went on to become chief strategist in two of Russia’s largest banks — Sberbank and Alfa Bank.
