Morning Report – Thursday 24th February

FTSE to open at 7,255 (-243 pts)

Global stocks markets have tumbled and safe havens surged as Vladimir Putin has launched a major military assault on Ukraine.

Putin said Russia did not plan to occupy Ukraine, but said Moscow’s response would be “instant” if anyone tried to stop this.

The key question now is whether Putin will just stick to the disputed eastern Donbas region, or whether Russia will attempt to take the whole of the Ukraine.
