Though much international media coverage has focused on the military conflict and on the war’s terrible humanitarian cost, Russia is also attacking Ukraine’s industrial and agricultural infrastructure. Speakers discuss the damage to the Ukrainian economy and the on-going efforts to keep it functioning, and consider what is needed to support Ukraine's economic survival and post-war recovery and what Kyiv’s international partners can do.
