CEOs set to discuss Russia with Hagel

Nearly 100 CEOs with the Business Roundtable are scheduled to meet Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel today, with situation in Crimea and a possible increase in sanctions against Russia certain to be on the agenda.

U.S.-based firms are the biggest foreign investors in Russia, particularly in technology and financial services. A main concern is that if the U.S. slaps sanctions on Russia, Vladimir Putin will respond in kind.

Air-leaser GE Capital Aviation Services (GE) is one of those concerned, as it has 54 airplanes in Russia.

    NASA should attend too as there would be no trip to the space station without Russian help.

    A bitter rivalry with Russia is insane. It is insane morally, for they have a good claim to the Crimea. It is insane pragmatically as well, as our economies have many links.

    Your second sentence should not be a question, but a clear statement.
