Regarding the likelihood of Ukraine being able to control its Inflation:
Russia dealt with its inflation (which had risen to 18% due to sanctions) by rapid increase of interest rates to 20%. That meant that inflation continued to fall (now an annualised 15.1%) so that interest rates could be brought down to 8% within 5 months.
Ukraine however has already increased its interest rates to 25% and its inflation has further increased to 22.2% and expected to be 30% by year end.

Remember Kenneth Rogoff from years ago who used his supposed intellectual power in selling and justifying austerity, which hurt so many millions of people? It was the dynamic duo of Rogoff-Reinhart who put out their masterful study justifying the cruel austerity policies; turns out their Excel sheets of data contained errors, which was very damaging to their cause. But Rogoff and Reinhart went on to prestigious positions and money-making, having successfully done more harm to the little people on behalf of the elite. Today’s western economists are purely hired whores, in keeping with moral bankruptcy of western leadership and system.

No excuses the Russians got over confident and lax on security you have 3 sabotage in Crimea and the Wagner group was bombed well behind enemy lines. At some point there is need of the Russians to say they are in fact at war and act like it
