Six months since the start of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, the end of the war is nowhere in sight. According to the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), more than 5,500 civilians have been killed. The actual numbers are believed to be considerably higher. Over 6.5 million refugees have fled Ukraine, with most of them seeking protection in Europe. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has stoked food inflation in several countries due to a supply shortage. At present, there is a significant drop after the prices peaked in March 2022
