The ongoing war between Russia and the peaceful Ukrainians has disrupted Ukraine's economy and status as a reliable wheat exporter. Disruption has hurts other areas of Ukraine's economy and it will decades to recover. Patterson has appeared to support Ukrainians at events in California (Los Angeles and the Bay Area) and Washington DC.   He plans to produce additional writings on the economic disruptions in Ukraine too support payments from Russia due to its military and economic crimes.
