Fireside chat on impacts of the Russian invasion of Ukraine on minerals supply
Monday 31 October (1430 - 1545)
Mining Law Committee
The unprovoked Russian invasion of Ukraine has had tremendous impacts on energy and food supply. Impacts of sanctions and Russian attempts to influence Europe by reducing hydrocarbon supply has resulted in an energy crisis which has dominated the recent public discussion. Less attention has been given to the impacts of the invasion on minerals supply from Ukraine, Russia and the minerals supply globally. The session will focus on how the war impacts the future possibilities of developing mineral resources in Ukraine, Russia’s ability to trade and develop mineral resources and global supply more widely.
