Retail Sales in Ukraine
Ukraine - Retail SalesThe war has now surpassed the grim milestone of 100 days. In recent weeks, fighting has shifted towards the east and south of Ukraine, and Russia has made significant territorial gains in the Donbas region. Moreover, it has largely succeeded in cutting Ukraine off from the sea, after capturing Mariupol to the east, Kherson to the west and instituting a naval blockade in the Black Sea. This is causing severe disruptions to wheat supplies worldwide. Ukraine was the world’s fifth biggest exporter prior to the conflict, which led exports to collapse year on year in both March and April. To make matters worse, bilateral peace talks in Turkey have largely stalled and no agreement is yet in sight. Nonetheless, international aid for the war effort has remained robust: The U.S. signed a new aid package worth about EUR 37 billion, while the EU pledged a further EUR 500 million in military aid.
