The Cabinet of Ministers preliminarily evaluates Ukraine’s losses from Russian aggression at $500 billion. It was stated by Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal at a briefing following the meeting in Kyiv with Deputy Prime Minister of Poland Yaroslav Kaczynski, Prime Ministers of Poland Mateusz Morawieki, Czech Republic Peter Fiala,  and Slovenia Janez Jansha.

“Preliminary calculations say that now direct one-time losses for Ukraine is more than $500 billion. And, in fact, these are the funds that will be needed to restore our state – at the expense of reparation from the Russian Federation and at the expense of our partners – for Ukraine to recover in order to become the same as it was before the war”, stated the head of Ukrainian government.

Denys Shmyhal assured that after the war all destroyed facilities will be restored , and added that Ukraine will work on seizure of Russian property abroad.

“We believe that our partner countries will join this ambitious plan”, said the prime minister.
