Last month, according to Ukrainian Finance Minister Serhii Marchenko, losses due to the Russian special military operation in Ukraine could amount to some $500 billion.
"Tens of areas where hostilities are taking place account for half of the GDP. The most important sections are Kharkov, Kiev, and Mariupol, which made a very significant contribution to the GDP," the Ukrainian minister told Forbes.
"Many supply chains are completely broken, many enterprises are physically destroyed, some are unable to work in war mode, many workers simply left," he added, highlighting the toll Russia's special military operation took on Ukraine.
According to Marchenko, the ministry of economy believed that the losses would cost Ukraine between a third to a half of its GDP. However, he also highlighted other estimates, which suggested that the losses would amount to a whopping $500 billion.
