The Russian government has announced military operations in Ukraine and the world is not happy about it. The UN Secretary General urged the Russian President to cease the military action, by saying, “President Putin, in the name of humanity bring your troops back to Russia. In the name of humanity do not allow to start in Europe what could be the worst war since the beginning of the century.” UN thinks that the conflict ‘must stop now’. However, Russia, ignoring this urge, is sticking to its actions and the assets markets, including gold rates, are increasing significantly. The yellow metal is behaving as a safe haven, against the present economic and political crisis.
