Is Ukraine a metaverse nightmare?

The Russian pipe-laying ship 'Akademik Tscherski' which is on deployment for the further construction of the Nord Stream 2 Baltic Sea pipeline, is moored at the port of Mukran on the island of Ruegen, Germany, on Sept. 8, 2020. The gas is still flowing from Russian even as bullets and missiles fly in Ukraine. But the war is raising huge questions about the energy ties between Europe and Russia. The conflict is helping keep oil and gas prices high due to fears of a possible reduction in supplies, and consumers will continue to face financial stress from that.

MOVING from a unipolar world to a multipolar world was always likely to be messy and risk-prone.

But few saw how fast we have moved from beating war drums to actual armed conflict between the Great Powers, the latest being Ukraine.
