Russian artists and athletes hurt by international boycotts

Analyst Jonathan Eyal of the Royal United Services Institute said such boycotts work a lot like economic sanctions — they penalize Russian people for the actions of their president. "None of this is, of course, going to change the Putin regime's policies, but it's a daily reminder to ordinary Russians about how isolated their country really is now," said Eyal, noting that this has happened before."...The sportsmen and women and the artists that are banned are sometimes the biggest unintended victims in this showdown," Eyal said. "If you are a citizen of that state, you are treated as part of that state."
