The war in Ukraine: the return of conflict to European soil

On February 24 this year, the world was shaken by the unimaginable. Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a “military operation” in Ukraine to protect separatists in that country’s east. The decision resulted in the worst conflict in Europe since the Balkan Wars in the 1990s.

Russian forces began encircling key Ukrainian cities, but were met with fierce resistance, armed by NATO and the US, dashing Moscow’s efforts to achieve a lightning victory. Putin’s war of words has provoked near-world disapproval, with harsh sanctions being imposed, leaving Moscow isolated but increasing fuel and grain.

Although the sides keep the death toll a secret, US intelligence puts casualties at around 100,000 soldiers per side. The United Nations says the total number of people fleeing Ukraine is about eight million. Even after eleven months, there is no way out.

‘Annus horribilis’ for 2022, United Kingdom

On 8 September, the United Kingdom marked the end of an era with the death of Queen Elizabeth II, the longest reigning monarch in British history (70 years). After his death, the country entered a period of mourning that lasted until the day of the funeral, which was celebrated with solemnity. His son Carlos would be his successor.

This historic event added to the political crisis that caused the country to have three prime ministers in a year.

Under pressure from the scandals, Boris Johnson had to leave office to make way for the conservative Liz Truss, who later became the most fleeting premier with only 45 days in power. His departure thereafter allowed the rise of former President Rishi Sunak from an ethnic minority.

Global inflation to the extent, the legacy of the pandemic

The global logistics crisis, the legacy of the pandemic and the conflict between Russia and Ukraine had a strong impact on the planet’s economy.

Commodity prices skyrocketed, raw materials and inputs for food production became scarce, and the price of a barrel of oil fell back to US$100, hitting everyone out of pocket. Strong economies in Europe as well as the US have not seen inflation recorded in four decades and today they have central banks raising their rates to the limit in years.

Extreme weather marked almost the entire planet

Extreme heat waves in Europe that killed more than 1,700 people in Portugal and Spain alone. China has experienced the worst drought in the last 60 years. One third of the whole of Pakistan was drowned in the flood and more than a thousand people died. Three consecutive years of La Nina event.

This 2022 was marked by milestones, events beyond the ordinary, average weather. It is a reflection of how climate change is completely changing the way we live and relate to the planet.

Two tennis giants hang up their rackets

2022 marks the end of an era, with the retirement of two figures who took tennis to another level and increased its popularity. First seeded American Serena Williams, who played her last match on 2 September, fell in the third round of the US Open.

He won 39 Grand Slam titles, among other achievements. 13 days later, Swiss Roger Federer (photo) announced that he was ending his career. His last tournament was the Laver Cup. He won 20 major tournaments and topped the world rankings for 310 weeks.

Peru and its ‘eternal’ crisis

Peruvians added a new record to a long political crisis: six presidents in six years. On 7 December, Pedro Castillo tried to stage a “self-coup” by declaring the closure of Congress, but this decision was rejected by his allies and the judiciary.
Parliament voted to remove her from the position of President, causing her ‘Vice’, Dina Boluaarte, to replace her, being the first woman in this position in its history. No one thinks the period will end.

Ecuador and the shadow of ‘Narco’

In Ecuador, violence and prison massacres have escalated during 2022, particularly in Guayaquil, a coastal city where gangs are fighting for control of the drug trade. Riots—which are frequent—add to violence in the streets. In Guayaquil, between January and October, at least 1,200 homicides were recorded, a 60 percent increase compared to the same period in 2021.

The reverse of abortion in America Tum Tum.

The conservative US Supreme Court on June 24 overturned the landmark ‘Roe v Wade’ decision, which had guaranteed abortion rights in that country since 1973. The Supreme Court’s decision to end abortion protections changed everything: from the political debate to the lives of millions of American women whose rights now depend on the state in which they live. Abortion is now almost completely banned in 18 of them.

kim’s war game

It is estimated that North Korea launched at least 44 missiles and projectiles this year, practically double the maximum added by the Kim Jong-un regime in 2016 or 2017.

With that record number and military responses from Washington, Seoul or Tokyo, the situation is set for maximum tension in the Far East and with the potential for a miscalculation that could end in a war disaster.
