The Russian invasion of Ukraine has had impacts worldwide on the apparel sector. The initial shock sent energy prices rocketing, and the sudden lack of availability of raw materials and staple crops is pushing up the cost of living for many consumers around the world.

Key Highlights

  • The Russian invasion of Ukraine has had global impacts on the apparel sector. The initial shock sent energy prices rocketing, and the sudden lack of availability of raw materials and staple crops is pushing up the cost of living for consumers worldwide, compounding the inflationary impacts of the global supply chain crisis.
  • The subsequent sanctions against Russia by many Western economies have been met with retaliation from Moscow. This includes sanctions that directly impact retail activities, such as restricting international shipping, payment systems and money transfers.
