Global markets update

The conflict in Ukraine is roiling many sectors across the globe, with investors fearing contagion in all parts of the market.

Equities in Europe are doing worse, with the Euro Stoxx 50 plunging 5% after bourses posted earlier losses across Asia.

World Leaders and Powerful statements.

Russia’s Vladimir Putin: “I decided to conduct a special military operation. Its goal is the protection of people who over the past eight years have suffered abuse and genocide from the Kyiv regime. We urge you to lay down arms immediately and go home. I will explain. All servicemen of the Ukrainian army who comply with this requirement can freely leave the area of military action and return to their families. Whoever would try to stop us and further create threats to our country, our people, should know that Russia’s response will be immediate and lead you to such consequences as you have never faced in your history. We are ready for any situation that arises. All necessary decisions in this regard have been made. I hope that I will be heard.”
