We repeat this feature article about a banker and venture capitalist in Ukraine who had, like his compatriots, to take up arms in defence of that country.
(Editor's note: As it is in the middle of August, and some of the team are away from the newsflow for a break, we thought it would be good to remind readers of some of the more eye-catching articles run since the start of 2022. This year has proved to be no less dramatic than the years immediately preceding it. Perhaps no event has been more important than Russia's invasion of Ukraine. It has affected energy prices, forced a rethink about national security, ESG investing, supply chains and the future of transnational organizations. This specific article involves an interview with a man who is like many of those who read this news service: he's a banker and investment manager by training and experience. And in the last few months, he's had to become a soldier.)
