Tough Times in Mayfair

The recent poisoning affair threw the lives of the superrich residents of London’s prestigious neighborhood Mayfair into turmoil, The Washington Post reports. They have lived in a pleasant coexistence with Russian refugees ala Berezovsky, Russian émigrés who fled to London to protect their fortunes from the reach of Vladimir Putin. However, Alexander Litvinenko’s poisoning showed the dark side of the newcomers. And now, the upscale sushi joint Itsu is closed, you can’t get a cocktail at the Pine Bar at the Millenium Hotel, and the Polonium trail is crisscrossing the neighborhood. You don’t want to leave your Rolls-Royce – it’s so shocking.
