Helsinki Arena might have to do without concerts by American stars and co-operation with US firms thanks to the sanctions on key Russian individuals and businesses announced by the United States, according to a report in the Financial Times.

The FT reports that companies including Live Nation, who bring many acts to Finland, are carefully considering how to proceed in the wake of the sanctions list. Gennadi Timchenko and Boris and Arkady Rotenberg, who own the arena through the Arena Events Oy company, are all on the sanctions list.

Concerts by Justin Timberlake, Miley Cyrus and others are at risk of cancellation if Live Nation’s lawyers conclude that they can no longer work with the Arena. Legal experts told the FT that if the company still needs to make any payments to the Arena, they would need special permission from the US Treasury.

lmao.gif Yeah, that will really make Putin toss and turn at night knowing Miley Cyrus can't perform in Helsinki. lol.gif
These boutique sanctions are an extension of what Alabama did when he spent more money to close down national parks and veterans memorials during the gov shutdown than it would have taken to keep them open.
Once again, the admin is unblemished by success. coffeetime.gif

Pathetic. Who the hell sees this as a strength?
These sanctions are petty, laughable and make the west look weak.
Sometimes, it's better to just hold your cards and shut the fcuk up.

Same old bullshit, new day.
We're back in the 80's.

Just have to ramp up the fear,
keep the War On Love going.

Should be clear to one and
all - with a couple of working
braincells left - that it was never
ever about "ideologies".

Glad I don't have to go see
Cyrelake nor Timbus, though.
Be they in Helsinki or right
here in town.

that's just ridiculous! being our entertainers from the west are basically our olive branch to the rest of the world we don't have much to offer in substance but we are entertaining.music and art break down so many barriers and these sanctions are just gonna build up barriers to be broken down again, making us look weak and pathetic ....I thought we were making steps forward not back....not that I advocate sending miley around as a good will ambassador or any thing but if the finnish wanna see that you should have the right , what happened to right to free travel and enterprise don't those sanctions violate our rights to preform our jobs as performers, I mean if these pop stars can be allowed to preform private concerts for world dictaors why cant they preform for the good people around the world....
