The German Institute for Economic Research has published the results of calculating Ukraine’s financial losses for five years of the war in the Donbas. Horrifying figures were announced: $ 95 billion. The war not only prevents Ukraine from developing, said Tetiana Bakhteieva, MP from the OPPOSITION BLOC, it pulls the economy and the whole country to the bottom.
“The worst thing is that in the center of Europe in the XXI century projectiles and mines are being torn, peaceful people are being killed and injured, mothers, who have lost their children, are crying. Therefore, for the residents of the East of Ukraine, peace is the most important desire,” the MP said.
According to her, in Ukraine there are already more than 1.6 million internally displaced persons. “The war has taken from these people a roof over their heads, jobs, faith in tomorrow. Many of these people are deprived of their constitutional rights to earned pensions, social benefits, high-quality medical care and social protection,” the politician emphasized.
Tetiana Bakhteieva is convinced: Ukraine and Ukrainians urgently need peace. “We will restore peace – we will revive the economy!” the MP concluded.
