How well does a winter cereal crop stand having tanks and armoured vehicles rolling about on it?

We moan about hare coursers and the likes over here, but I don't suppose the farmers near that border are having a good time of it.:(
Ukraine is massive so would depend how widespread they travelled
but wouldn't want to be sat on a combine in the middle of a cross fire .

The crop is there and will take some stopping now

irrelevant if you cant harvest for fear of being shelled or shot ! or more importantly all your ports are closed

It's the ports that are so important not just for their exports but other eastern european countries as well - first thing that will happen in conflict is they will close


There will be export sanctions as well if things kick off

Oh dear you disaster capitalists hold the country to ransom at a time when democracy is under threat. Maybe Rayner is right to characterise you and Rees Mogg as Tory scum?

Bit strong isn't it? It's just an observation on what is a likely consequence if it does kick off in Ukraine, I know Clive's important round here but he's not actually pulling old Vlad The Invader's strings to bump his own margins up.

Is he?

Betting against your country is disaster capitalism in my book.
