‼️ Dear, “BBC learning English”. Please start using the truly right terms. You need to change one of the reasons for global prices rising. The prices are rising not because of the war in Ukraine, they are increasing due to russian❗️ invasion of Ukraine. When you are sayings “because of the war in Ukraine” a lot of people over the world start thinking that it’s our (Ukrainians) fault for their daily financial problems. But the root of the problem is russia❗️. They came to our homes and started to kill our civilians. Ukraine just trying to survive and protect its own! russia is a terrorist state! ‼️

You are so miserable! Let's call a spade a spade. No one word about Russia! Russia invaded in Ukraine, killing citizens and destroying towns! But you are telling about war in Ukraine like it is a civil war. Shame on you!

The reason for Inflation is due to war and sanctions. The smooth flow of essential items which are required for a common man to live has been affected due to war and sanctions. The people have forgotten European history and Russian winter. So far no country was able to defeat Russia in a War. Examples are Napoleon Bonaparte and Hitler. So this is a man-made problem. Kindly read Battle of Stalingrad & (Sixth Army surrounded portion).

The inflation and recession will also affect the K-pop industry. The specter of another inflation is concerning the K-pop company. The bullying scandal of Kim Garam, the member of the K-pop group Lesserafim dragged the whole group into the mire. It's a tightrope. If the company handles this wrong, it will fail the group.

It's all planned. Nothing is random, it's all planned.
The WEF and the rest of the low life cult enslaving humanity in this fake reality want a new world order and everything you see is just all small stepping stones to them getting exactly what they planned all along.

The great reset where humanity will own nothing and be happy apparently.

And the MSM are nothing but low life puppets used to manipulate your perceptions so you believe the bs they tell you.

When you believe the lies you comply like a brainwashed sheep. Exactly what they want. A controlled' society.

Wake up people.
