Officials from Kyiv will meet Russian counterparts at the Belarus border, hours after President Vladimir Putin put Russia’s nuclear forces on higher alert and even as fighting continues inside Ukraine. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy voiced skepticism that talks would yield results, but said he was willing for them to happen if it meant any chance at peace. The European Union will close its airspace to Russian aircraft, and ban some Russian state-owned media companies. Western nations agreed to exclude some Russian banks from the SWIFT messaging system, used for trillions of dollars in transactions between banks around the world, and to target the Russian Central Bank’s international reserves. Russians lined up at cash machines around the country to withdraw foreign currency on fears the ruble could collapse. to our YouTube channel: Subscribe to our newest channel Quicktake Explained: Bloomberg Quicktake brings you live global news and original shows spanning business, technology, politics and culture.
