Putin: We need to consider if we recognize independence of breakaway Ukranian regions

Putin the wolf of gas meme

Putin may recognize the breakaway regions in the Duma as soon as today.

  • We need to consider if we recognize independence of two breakaway regions
  • All these years, the people who live in Donbas has been bullied
  • If Russia faces the danger of Ukraine joining NATO, the threat for our country will increase substantially
  • France told me the US position had changed but wouldn’t tell me what the changes were
  • Lavrov confirms meeting with Blinken on Feb 24 in Geneva
  • Macron told him Ukraine is working on fresh ideas to hold elections in its two breakaway regions
  • Kozak, who is the special representative on Ukraine, tells him Ukraine will never observe Minsk agreements
  • Bortnikov: One of the saboteurs who crossed into Russia was captured
  • 68,500 refugees have left Donbas
  • Defense minister Shoigu: Ukraine has built up large military force near Donas
  • Ukraine has amassed 59.3K troops at separatist borders

He’s not tipping his hand either way here but you can see which way the wind is blowing. And if you can’t have a look at Russian markets.

Watch Putin live (with translation) here.

Crude Oil

Crude oil is the most popular tradable instrument in the energy sector, offering exposure to global market conditions, geopolitical risk, and economics. The instrument is strategically relied upon and situated in the global economy. Crude oil has proven to be a unique option for traders given volatility and the efficacy of both swing trading and longer-term strategies. Despite its popularity, crude oil is a very complex
investing instrument, given the litany of fluctuations in oil prices, risk, and impact of politics stemming from OPEC. Short for the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, OPEC operates as an intergovernmental organization of 13 countries, helping set and dictate the global oil market.How to Trade Crude Oil Crude oil is most commonly traded as an exchange-traded fund (ETF) or through other instruments with exposure to it. This includes energy stocks, the USD/CAD, and other investing options. Crude oil itself is traded across a duality of markets, including the West Texas Intermediate Crude (WTI) and Brent crude. Brent is the more relied upon index in recent years, while WTI is more heavily traded across futures trading at the time of writing. Other than geopolitical events or decisions by OPEC, crude oil can move due to a variety of different ways.  The most basic is through simple supply and demand, which is affected by global output. Increased industrial output, economic prosperity, and other factors all play a role in crude prices. By extension, recessions, lockdowns, or other stifling factors can also influence crude prices. For example, an oversupply or mitigated demand due to the aforementioned factors would result in lower crude prices. This is due to traders selling crude oil futures or other instruments.  Should demand rise or production plateau, traders will bid increasingly on crude, whereby driving prices up.
