BP, the U.K. oil giant, announced a 34 percent rise in profits Tuesday – but its results highlighted concerns over its important Russian joint venture.
The company's 19.75 percent stake in Rosneft is regularly cited as one of the most lucrative deals which could be threatened if sanctions imposed against Russia in the light of the Ukrainian crisis escalate.
