Next month, numerous US musical performers, including Miley Cyrus and Justin Timberlake, are scheduled to perform at Finland’s Hartwall Arena. Concern arose that these performances would have to be cancelled as a result of US sanctions, as the owners of Hartwall Arena are Gennady Timchenko, Arkady Rotenberg and Boris Rotenberg, all of whom are on the US Specially Designated Nationals List. However, Reuters reported that US officials have told Live Nation, the concert promoter, that the sanctions will not have an impact on Hartwall Arena and the scheduled concerts.
