The Russian full-scale aggression against Ukraine, which started on February 24th this year, puts agriculture in the entire country at risk. Airstrikes, occupation and active military battles, which, by the end of March, are happening mainly in Southern, Eastern and Northern regions are serious threats to the 2022’s sowing and harvesting campaigns.

Leibniz Institute of Agricultural Development in Transition Economies (IAMO, Germany), Kyiv School of Economics (KSE, Ukraine), Wageningen University & Research (WUR, Netherlands) and German-Ukrainian Agricultural Policy Dialogue (APD, Ukraine) jointly organize a series of panel discussions “Is Russian full-scale 2022 invasion of Ukraine changing agrifood markets as we know them?”

Well-known Ukrainian and international experts examine and discuss the implications of the Russian aggression on availability and prices of agricultural commodities, patterns of trade, agricultural input industries, national food policies, etc.
