The world was stunned when Russia launched an old school ground invasion of Ukraine. But how about the great cyberwar we had been warned of? Ukrainian institutions and companies have been hacked, but none of the major attacks are taking out power grids and telecom networks – at least not yet.

Meanwhile, Russia's sovereign credit rating has been slashed to junk status by two major ratings agencies and the Moscow Stock Exchange is closed for a fourth consecutive day.

A new opinion poll shows support for Emmanuel Macron at its highest level yet in round one of France's April presidential election. The reason for this boost might also explain why the incumbent president has not yet declared his candidacy: his role in the Ukraine crisis.
