Putin’s actions are “signs of weakness” IG News

Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a “partial mobilization” and promised to take over the areas his army is now occupying. He referred to the actions in a televised speech as “urgent, urgent efforts to protect Russia’s sovereignty, security and territorial integrity”.

Treasuries, gold and the dollar gained in haven assets after Putin sank in markets already prepared for a super-sized rate hike from the Federal Reserve. US Ambassador to Ukraine Bridget Brink said in a tweet that “pretend referendums and mobilization weakness are signs of Russian failure.” Russian stock prices fell to their lowest level since the invasion.

In a television interview, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said there would be a gradual call-up of 300,000 troops. In its most recent extension of the offensive, the Kremlin plans to hold a hasty referendum on unifying the four occupied territories in eastern and southern Ukraine as soon as this weekend. The nation reached its lowest level since the invasion.
