Ukraine Update: Russia Continues Offensive as Peace Talks Reach Dead End

Industry impacted: Government

As QuoIntelligence assessed over the last weeks, a potential peace agreement between Russia and Ukraine is unlikely in the medium term. As Russia changed its strategy to focus on the east and south of Ukraine and the conflict enters an attrition warfare phase, it could last longer than the first offensive. Volatile energy and commodities prices are likely, including further disruptions to energy supplies, rising the costs for producers and resulting in shortages that will expand to additional sectors.
As for the cyber threat landscape, the discovery and disruption of Industroyer2, aiming at causing blackout this week, confirmed Russia’s willingness to engage in cyber operations against critical infrastructure and Ukraine’s capability to counter threats.
