(S+) Ukraine war and inflation: why the shelves are empty and prices are high


From the supermarket to the manufacturer of Euro pallets - the war in Ukraine is bringing supplies to a standstill and driving up prices. How is that related? And what do we have to adjust to?

The shelves are empty, the sunflower oil has been sold out for weeks: Marc-Andreas Demski can only refer to expensive premium oils in his Berlin health food store.

Demand has increased fourfold since the beginning of the war.

He no longer has any oil reserves.

In the supermarket, at the blackboard, in the swimming pool and in a pallet factory - the SPIEGEL Daily team asked these places: How are the consequences of the Ukraine war being felt in this country?

Why are there bottlenecks?

Why can nails from Russia paralyze various supply chains?

Why are so many things becoming massively more expensive?

And, above all, what can we expect for the future?
