Timothy Ash quotes

Putin never likes to take chances with domestic politics, and will want to impress on the Russian electorate his own strength, and how lucky they are to be Russians citizens, as perhaps compared to their Ukrainian counterparts.feedback

How better to provide a distraction therein than through a re-escalation on the ground in Crimea/Donbas, allowing Russians and Ukrainians to question what has been gained from independence by Ukraine.feedback

So perhaps this latest re-escalation is a warning to the Poroshenko administration not to cross red lines. In the past, military re-escalation in the East has worked to destabilize the macro economy in Ukraine...There may thus be a desire to go back to past proven policies and to try and weaken the comparative Ukrainian economic performance.feedback

This has nothing to do with inflation – with the economy failing to fire, the central bank should be cutting rates.feedback

I would expect the Turkish authorities, particularly the central bank, to be active in re-assuring investors. For the central bank, the problem is that the lira was weak last week on global market concerns.feedback

Ukraine's room for negotiation has suddenly shrunk quite considerably.feedback

The danger with this totally out-of-the-box move is that investors will seriously begin to question the credibility of the central bank as an institution, given that foreign investors' prime concern at present on Turkey are fears of overheating as reflected in the current account deficit.feedback
