The losses from the occupation of the territory of Donbas make 375 billion hryvnias ($13,456,151,250) without consideration of the cost of occupied Donbas assets. Minister for the Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories Oleksiy Reznikov reported that.
Besides, according to Reznikov, over $21 billion will be needed for the restoration of Donbas.
“According to the estimations of the experts of the Economic Strategies Center, the losses only in Donetsk and Luhansk regions make 375 billion hryvnias ($13,456,151,250) without consideration of the assets situated in occupied territories. According to the Vienna International Institute, the expenses for restoration of Donetsk and Luhansk regions surpass $21 billion,” he said.
The minister noted that it would be possible to talk about complete reintegration only with the creation of the economic zones in the occupied Donbas.
Earlier, Head of the Ukrainian delegation in the Minsk talks group Leonid Kravchuk stated that the fate of occupied Donbas and Crimea could be solved via the all-Ukraine referendum.
