Russian Sanctions - 2 months in - Are they working ? Talking with Economics writer Phillip Inman of The Guardian and Observer newspapers.

Are Russian sanctions starting to bite ? Or will China, India and Israel provide a back door to bust the sanctions, as Russia has done for Cuba and Iran for instance ?

But could they be thwarted by  China, India and Israel providing a back door lifeline to bust the sanctions ?
