WAR IN EUROPE : Russo-Ukraine War - Impact on Africa

Russia launched a full scale invasion of Ukraine in February 2022. In the minds of ordinary people, this was a power play for reasons best known to those taking part in it.

What could it possible do to Africa? As the war unfolded, it became clearer that the concept of the global village is a reality that is here to stay. First it was Europe worrying over fuel and gas supplies from Ukraine and Russia as their winter approached. Then the rest of the world quickly realised that there is no longer such a thing as a war far away.

The articles you will read here are a collation of pieces by journalists who partner with the Foundation. These are some of the articles they have written about the war since it started and they write about its impact on Africa.
