Deutsche Bank’s CEOs will still be allowed to show their faces at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, because German businessmen—familiar as they are with protecting their own abroad—don’t see any reason why imperial irredentism should get in the way of making money.

The White House is lobbying top U.S. corporate leaders to spurn Russian President Vladimir Putin by canceling attendance at an economic conference in St. Petersburg later this month....

Goldman Sachs Group Inc. Chief Executive Officer Lloyd C. Blankfein probably won’t attend, according to a person briefed on the matter, and Morgan Stanley CEO James Gorman is canceling his plans, another person said….

Citigroup CEO Michael Corbat will send lieutenants in his place, the company said last week....

The U.S. government also won’t be represented in St. Petersburg. “No one is going” from the administration, Hayden said in an e-mail. Typically, officials from the Commerce or Treasury Departments and U.S. Trade Representative’s office would attend, she said.
