What the Russia-Ukraine war means for Iraqi Kurdistan

Russia's invasion of Ukraine has had wide-ranging economic, political, and social consequences around the world, including in Iraqi Kurdistan.

Food and fuel prices have increased dramatically since the conflict began in February, and supplies of medicine imported from Ukraine have threatened to run short.
