Europe is still suffering from the consequences of the Russia-Ukraine war, especially inflation, high prices for basic foodstuffs, in addition to high energy prices that have led to more factory closures.

A complex food crisis threatens the old continent, with the prices of basic foodstuffs such as chicken, milk, eggs, vegetables, and rice rising to more than 20%, which exacerbates the crisis that Europe is suffering from due to the rise in energy prices to unprecedented levels in the countries of the single currency.

The European Statistics Institute "Eurostat" recently indicated that inflation in the euro area reached 10.6% in October compared to the same month of the previous year, and although energy costs are still the main factor as a result of the Russian war in Ukraine, the increase in prices affects more.

A greater number of products in the shopping cart witnessed rises in prices, according to the Spanish newspaper "Al-Dibati".
