A Kremlin-linked Russian businessman fighting extradition to the United States from Switzerland is the victim of a U.S. political campaign that seeks to snare him on trumped-up insider trading charges, his lawyer said on Thursday. This gave him access to "certain security information related to the Russian government, which in our opinion (is) the reason for his arrest", Ciric said. The United States in April imposed a broad array of sanctions on Russia to punish it for interfering in last year's U.S. election, cyber hacking, bullying Ukraine and other alleged malign actions. read moreNews that Switzerland had detained Klyushin emerged just ahead of a June 16 summit between U.S. President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva.

When a Covid-19 outbreak emerged at one of Rob Katz's Colorado ski resorts in March, he knew it was going to be a game changer. The upcoming holiday season will be telling as to how dramatically revenues are affected. Europe, one of the world's preeminent ski destinations, brings in an estimated 34 billion euros ($41 billion) annually from its winter resorts. Vail Resorts has taken similar safety measures at its locations, all of which are scheduled to reopen by Dec. 19. The success of the winter season, however, will depend on skiers' appetite for risk in the face of a still rampant virus.

“If it’s open, I’ll definitely ski,” said Swede Max Ahlstedt, on the glacier where Zermatt offers year-round skiing. Some Swiss resorts, including Davos to the northwest, boast of “cold-fogging” equipment to blast the interiors of gondolas and “kill 99.9% of viruses, bacteria and spores in a minute”. The Swiss tourism association has even adopted “Clean & Safe” as its motto in the hope of easing tourists’ nerves. “It’d be worse if you couldn’t go to the mountains at all,” said Anne Spiegler, a German living in Zurich. Swiss resorts know that the number of guests from Britain, the Netherlands, Germany or Scandinavia will inevitably be far below the levels of a normal season as the wait for a vaccine stunts cross-border travel.
