In this particular instance, I think there could be a case of concurrency as there was a delay (and we still do not know the cause of the delay) and then, there is a force-majeure. It is essential to determine the cause of the delay before the invasion to say a more confident word about the next steps. What do you think?

while War is usually an act of force Majeure, in this case, if the company has defaulted two months before the war, then that cannot only be said to be force Majeure. That's a breach.
