STOP THE TRAFFIK Ukraine Briefing 13 April 2022

STOP THE TRAFFIK & Traffik Analysis Hub regularly monitor events that will likely impact operational, human rights, and supply chain risk and provide briefing notes. With the recent invasion of Ukraine leading to severe disruption of supply chains and causing a refugee crisis in Europe, STOP THE TRAFFIK & Traffik Analysis Hub has provided an updated downloadable briefing.

Please note that these are preliminary findings and are subject to change due to the current situation.

We are an intelligence-led organisation and our briefing covers insights such as:

  • Natural gas that is crucial to the production of fertilisers for agriculture and CO2 for food packaging is threatened by war- and sanctions- related disruptions
  • Petrol is also at-risk, as prices of petrol have soared due to fears of reduced Russian supply. This will have severe knock-on effects on the price and availability of transport
  • With almost 30% of global wheat exports coming from Russia and Ukraine, closure of production facilities in Ukraine and the closure of ports in the Black and Azov Sea heavily disrupt this supply, which countries in North Africa and the Middle East are dependent on

This updated briefing on Ukraine is a key to help notify businesses of potential routes and hotspots of exploitation, to draw conclusions as to whether or not further preventative action must be taken to avoid exploitation, and to offer recommendations for businesses who operate in at-risk areas due to the current conflict in Ukraine.
