Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is exacerbating the conflict in Yemen which is dependent on wheat which is grown in both countries. Katherine Zimmerman, a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), and Nadwa Al Dawsari, non-resident scholar at the Middle East Institute, review the military, political and humanitarian state of play in Yemen as the civil conflict which began in 2014, has morphed over the last eight years into a proxy war between regional rivals Iran and Saudi Arabia. They are pessimistic that the stalemate can be broken any time soon, even for a truce during the holy month of Ramadan.
