The war in Ukraine continued, with no end in sight. [International Chronology July 2023 PDF]
In June 2023, the conflict in Ukraine began its fifth month with no sign of a resolution. Due to the fighting, millions of people have been forced to leave their homes, resulting in a humanitarian disaster. The war has had a big effect on the world economy as well, driving increasing energy costs and upsetting supply lines.
In recent months, the war in Ukraine has drawn a lot of attention from across the world. In an effort to put Russia under pressure to stop the conflict, the United States and its allies have slapped a series of sanctions on the nation. However, the battle is still going on and the sanctions haven’t had much of an impact. [International Chronology July 2023 PDF]
There is growing concern that the situation in Ukraine may intensify and spread. If its security is challenged, Russia has vowed to use nuclear weapons. Additionally, the United States and its allies have threatened to retaliate if Russia deploys nuclear weapons.
The international system is being put to the test by the conflict in Ukraine. There is rising concern that the globe is becoming more dangerous because the United Nations has been powerless to put an end to the conflict. [International Chronology July 2023 PDF]

In June 2023, the European Union will suspend the majority of oil imports from Russia. The restriction was one of many measures that the EU took against Russia in retaliation for its invasion of Ukraine. On the Russian economy, the prohibition is anticipated to have a considerable effect.
There have been conflicting responses to the ban. Given their reliance on Russian oil, several nations, including Germany, have been hesitant to enact the boycott. The EU has countered that the ban is essential to exerting pressure on Russia to put a stop to the conflict in Ukraine.
