The ripple effects of Russia’s war in Ukraine are changing the world

We’ve been hearing a lot about ripple effects of Russia’s war in Ukraine. This piece does a good job of giving an overview of how and where effects are felt. I hope they’ll keep updating. A few examples:

  • One of Europe’s poorest countries has received the most Ukrainian refugees per capita, nearing 460,000, or almost one-sixth of Moldova’s population.
  • The war’s impact on food, fertilizer and fuel costs has exacerbated the political crisis in Peru.
  • In Lebanon, the cost of a basic food basket more than tripled compared to a year earlier.
