“For the Donetsk region, the GRP per capita fell by 4,630 dollars, for the Luhansk region - by 3,326 dollars,” the researchers conclude.
They note that Donbas before the war was of particular economic importance for Ukraine. Until 2014, it accounted for about 25% of Ukrainian exports and more than 15% of investments in fixed assets.
In general, due to the war in the east of the country, Ukraine has lost an average of 15.1% of per capita GDP in the war period (2013–2017), or 9.2% of GDP in 2014, 19.6% of GDP in 2015, 19, 8% of GDP in 2016 and 21.7% of GDP in 2017.
We recall the armed conflict in Donbas with the participation of Russian-supported militants, began in April 2014. On the part of Ukraine, the anti-terrorist operation was announced, which after several years was reformatted into operation by the joint forces.
It is reported that separatists place heavy weapons near the homes of civilians in Donbas.
"Military positions and heavy weapons continue to be placed close to civilian housing. Footage from the OSCE SMM unmanned aerial vehicles reveals the consequences," the report says.
The report also has a video from a drone that shows the consequences of military actions near the settlements of Chyhari and Pikuzy in the Donetsk region.
