Tensions are high on the Ukraine-Russia border.

The forecast for the region include economic sanctions against Russia and an escalating Russian military intervention into Ukraine.

Investors who don’t care for this uncertainty would probably rather stay out of the region altogether.

“[T]he worst case scenario that Russia becomes uninvestible (capital controls, such as in Malaysia in 1998, and even the expropriation of foreign owned assets in Russia) with Russia kicked out of MSCI GEMs cannot be entirely ruled out,” warned UBS’s Geoff Dennis.

Here’s a table of names Buckland identified.
