Russia, which invaded Ukraine on February 24, 2022, is the world’s largest natural gas producer. For months, Russia has been accused of deliberately interrupting gas supplies in order to leverage its position as a key energy provider to Europe during a developing dispute with Ukraine.

Increases in fuel costs are anticipated to rise in Kenya’s already high cost of living. Inflation in the country jumped to 5.78 percent last month, up from 5.69 percent in January.
