Morning Report – Tuesday 22nd February

FTSE trading at 7,462 (-21 pts)

Vladimir Putin has ordered troops into eastern Ukraine after recognising two Moscow-backed separatist regions.

This significantly reduces the prospect of finding a diplomatic solution and has sent stock markets tumbling and oil surging.

Away from Russia, stocks in Hong Kong have also been hit by speculation of further regulatory tightening from Bejieng with tech heavyweights Tencent and Alibaba trading lower.

Due to technical difficulties today’s Morning Report has been created after the FTSE opened. We apologise for any inconvenience this has caused.
