Russian-Ukrainian War's Effects on the World Economy

Nawar Al-Saadi


The invasion of Ukraine by Russia in February 2022 increased geopolitical tensions between the West and Russia, which decreased expectations for global growth because it was unclear how the conflict would affect the global supply chain in particular.

Conflicts have sparked shocks in the energy supply, the commodities and trade supply, and increased prices for commodities, food, and energy, which has resulted in worldwide inflation in many nations. This study looks at how the Russian-Ukrainian War affected the world economy in the month that followed the conflict.
