The war in Ukraine reaches its 89th day. Russia, after the fall of Mariupol, its first success in the conflict, is focusing its offensive in the east with virulent attacks in the Nicolay region and Donbass with aerial missiles. For this reason, the Ukrainian president Volodímir Zelenski has branded the situation in that area as “extremely difficult”. The Russian invasion is costing the lives of between 50 and 100 soldiers a day, according to sources in kyiv.
Meanwhile, in addition to soaring oil and energy prices, the conflict is emptying granaries around the world and driving up grain prices.
