Damage to Donbass infrastructure estimated at $ 50bn

Losses are growing every day.

The damage caused to the infrastructure of Donbass from military operations is estimated at 50 billion dollars, said First Deputy Defense Minister of Ukraine Ivan Rusnak. "The objects of energy, transport, social infrastructures in the east of Ukraine have been destroyed. According to preliminary data, the losses run into $ 50 billion," Interfax-Ukraine quoted Rusnak as saying at a Kyiv conference on Monday.

In the autumn of 2014, the then Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said the restoration of Donbas may cost 8 billion dollars.
