The war in Ukraine stands out as the world’s most ferocious war today. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine led to tens of thousands of lives lost (and counting) on both sides, massive destructions, countless civilian casualties, and around 12 million Ukrainians refugees and displaced persons. Moscow’s initial belief that the invasion would be over in a matter of days has been thwarted by the epic resistance from Ukrainian military forces and civilian fighters. Despite attempts at peace talks, the war continues indefinitely. The Ukraine war has brought about far reaching impacts on the world order, geopolitical dynamics, and global economy, affecting multilateralism, international finance and trade, energy security, food security, supply chain, etc.

Indonesia also witnessed several political dynamics such as the launch of a sovereign wealth fund and changes in the cabinet’s nomenclature that raised many questions.
