Latest Updates on the Ukraine/Russia Crisis

Whilst at its core a humanitarian crisis, the Russian invasion of Ukraine risks adding materially to existing global economic and supply challenges. We are likely heading into a period in which geopolitics will become a regular part of boardroom discussions. Recent developments have seen Russian companies make significant progress around the world to supply countries with equipment in various Aerospace, Defense & Security sectors. This means that countries dependent on Russian arms for their security calculations should review all purchases and clauses regarding their programs and payments.

The Group of Seven (G7), an inter-governmental political forum of seven leading economies, agreed to provide $19.8bn in economic aid to Ukraine.

The assistance is expected to help Ukraine to fund its requirements as the ongoing conflict led to a collapse in cash inflows.

The conflict began three months ago after Russia launched a ‘military operation’ against neighbouring Ukraine.

During a meeting in Germany, the financial ministers and central bank governors of the G7 countries discussed the Ukraine situation.

According to a Reuters report, the countries committed to providing additional financial support to Ukraine, if needed.

G7 was quoted by the news agency as saying in a communique: “In 2022, we have mobilised $19.8bn of budget support, including $9.5bn of recent commitments […] to help Ukraine close its financing gap and continue ensuring the delivery of basic services to the Ukrainian people.

“Furthermore, we welcome ongoing work across the G7 and international financial institutions on further substantial financing to Ukraine, notably including the proposal by the European Commission for up to €9bn of additional macro-financial assistance.”

The G7 countries include the US, the UK, Canada, Japan, Germany, France, and Italy.

US President Joe Biden has also signed a bill into law that will provide an additional $40bn in assistance to Ukraine.

Last week, the US Senate approved the aid package for Ukraine with an overwhelming majority.

The new legislation will supply approximately $20bn worth of military assistance to the embattled nation to ensure a steady flow of weapons for the Ukrainian troops.

The US administration recently announced another drawdown of equipment from the US Department of Defense (DoD) inventories for Ukraine. The $100m package includes 155mm Howitzers, AN/TPQ-36 counter-artillery radars, and other field equipment.
