The nuanced Kremlin reaction made clear that Russia was not rejecting the U.S. and NATO responses out of hand or closing the door to diplomacy. The Russian foreign ministry said the best way to reduce tensions was for NATO to withdraw forces from eastern Europe, but also sought to quash fears of an invasion. Russia is the world's second-largest oil producer, and the crisis over Ukraine has fanned fears that energy supplies to Europe will be disrupted. Ukrainian, Russian, German and French diplomats discussed the conflict in eastern Ukraine in Paris on Wednesday and agreed more talks should be held in Berlin in two weeks. He said Moscow believed Washington was preparing to deploy short and intermediate range missiles to Europe and the Asia-Pacific region.

But he said U.S. and NATO statements that Russia's main demands were unacceptable did not leave much room for optimism. The nuanced Kremlin reaction made clear that Russia was not rejecting the U.S. and NATO responses out of hand or closing the door to diplomacy. Russia denies planning to invade Ukraine but says it wants to enforce "red lines" to protect its own security. He has warned of an unspecified "military-technical response" - something defence analysts say could relate to missile deployments - if Russia's demands are ignored. Ermakov said Moscow believed Washington was preparing to deploy short and intermediate range missiles to Europe and the Asia-Pacific region.

According to the data from National Stock Exchange of India, foreigners have sold $7.24 billion between Oct. 1 and Jan. 25, but domestic Indian institutions purchased $9.63 billion in that period. Reuters GraphicsAnalysts said the rise in domestic investments is due to the surge in retail interest in the equity markets as the country's young investors pick stocks over other traditional assets. "Hence, we see continued buying from retail investors. This domestic support could protect Indian markets against global volatility as the U.S. Federal Reserve gets set to raise interest rates rapidly in efforts to combat higher inflation. Some analysts said India's higher stock valuations could deter foreign investors, but domestic investors would continue to accumulate shares.

On that note, Both Citi and Jefferies just released in-depth reviews of how the European stock markets are exposed to the geopolitical crisis. Euro zone money markets currently price more than 20 basis points of ECB rate hikes by December 2022. With that in mind, stock pickers are increasingly looking for data on rate sensitivity across the space; and a timely Jefferies note on European banks has some interesting findings. "Secondly, French banks have significant exposure to France, where lending is mostly at fixed rate, limiting the rate sensitivity".

MOSCOW, Jan 27 (Reuters) - Russia said on Thursday that a nuclear missile crisis between Moscow and Washington was unavoidable without measures to ensure restraint and predictability, the TASS news agency reported. The remark by foreign ministry official Vladimir Ermakov came a day after the United States and NATO formally responded to Russian security proposals in ways that the Kremlin said failed to address its key concerns but left open the possibility for further dialogue. Otherwise, new 'missile crises' are unavoidable," he was quoted as saying. Russia's security package, presented in December, included a proposal that it and the West should refrain from deploying short or intermediate-range (INF) nuclear missiles that could hit each other's territories. Ermakov said Moscow thought the United States was making preparations to deploy short or intermediate-range missiles to Europe and the Asia-Pacific region.

But when those international sales were battered by a 1997 financial crisis in East Asia, Hong Kong production houses began looking to mainland China as their main source of overseas revenue. Early censorshipAn early example of such censorship is “The Inescapable Snare,” a re-edited version of “Naked Ambition,” a 2003 Hong Kong film about the local sex industry. The mainland version adds a plot twist in which Hong Kong police officers team up with Beijing’s Ministry of Public Security to crack down on pornography and prostitution. Other Hong Kong films were edited for audiences in Southeast Asia, a region where governments and film audiences tend to be socially conservative. The Hong Kong government has been cracking down on documentaries and independent productions that it fears could glamorize the pro-democracy protests that roiled the city in 2019.
