As long as the conflict between Ukraine and Russia continues, according to President Nana Akufo Addo, the country’s economy will face challenges.

The invasion began on the morning of February 24, when Putin, reiterating his false claim that Ukraine was associated with Nazism, launched a “special military operation” for the “demilitarization and denazification” of Ukraine.

As Africa was recovering from the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, according to Nana Addo, the war between the two nations now affects most nations on the continent. He stated that things are getting worse.

“In 2021, COVID-19 pushed Africa into the worst recession in half a century. A drop in productivity and revenues, increasing pressures on spending and spiraling public debt confronted us relentlessly.”

“As we grapple with these economic challenges, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has exploded on us, aggravating an already difficult situation. It’s not just the dismay we feel at seeing a deliberate devastation of cities and towns in Europe in the year 2022, we are feeling this war right in our lives in Africa.

“Every bullet, every bomb, every projectile that hits a target in Ukraine, hits our pockets and our economies in Africa,” he lamented during a speech at the 77th UN General Assembly on Wednesday.
