September marked six months since Russia’s unprovoked invasion against Ukraine began. The destruction continues. In August, the Kyiv School of Economics estimated that the war has cost Ukraine 103.8 billion US dollars thus far. This is not to mention the human loss, cultural capital and agriculture. The authors of this issue address all of these topics, presenting the perspective from inside Ukraine.
