Jonathan Clibborn, an Irish man whose wife and three boys live in Clogheen, Co Tipperary, says he is “doubling down” on investing in their 4,500ha farm west of Lviv, Ukraine, to “help with [the] necessity to get Ukraine up and running and producing again”.

Clibborn, who moved to Ukraine in 2007 and bought his own farm in 2014, said he and his 30 farm staff are planning on adding pig and poultry production to their tillage farm.
