Washington and its allies are preparing for a protracted conflict in Ukraine – at least until February next year. The Washington Post writes about this, citing a senior representative of the US State Department.
Earlier, the White House discussed the possibility of a protracted conflict with global side effects.
Meanwhile, UN economists warn that the crisis in Ukraine could negate the recovery of the world economy, and another fall is not ruled out. First of all, we are talking about global investment flows.
The UNCTAD (United Nations Conference on Trade and Development) report highlights that the growth momentum achieved in 2021 cannot be sustained. Global flows of foreign direct investment this year are likely to move on a downward trajectory or remain at the same level.
Experts have warned that investors will invest less in developing countries. Governments, especially those in countries that import oil and food, will have fewer resources to spend on so-called “green” or new projects.
