Sanctions Are Badge of Honor as Foes Revel in Cold War Revival

Russian tycoon Vladimir Yakunin and U.S. Senator John McCain are united by one thing as their leaders square off over the fate of Ukraine: Both are wearing sanctions as a badge of honor.

“I felt uncomfortable that many of my friends were on the first list but not me,” Yakunin said in a telephone interview. “Now I am at peace.” McCain tweeted: “I’m proud to be sanctioned by Putin.”
