A sign at a BP filling station in central London on October 30, 2012Oil giant BP warned on Tuesday that more sanctions on Russia over the Ukraine crisis could "adversely impact" its activities, and posted a quarterly profit leap aided by its stake in Rosneft. BP said that it had been unaffected so far by US sanctions imposed on Russia, reporting a two-thirds boost to second-quarter net profits from the equivalent figure last year. The British energy major owns almost 20 percent of Rosneft following a 2012 deal in which it sold the Russian state oil firm its 50-percent stake in joint venture TNK-BP. "If further international sanctions are imposed on Rosneft or new sanctions are imposed on Russia or other Russian individuals or entities, this could have a material adverse impact on our relationship with and investment in Rosneft, our business and strategic objectives in Russia and our financial position and results of operations," BP said.
