On May 12, the Kyiv School of Economics (KSE Institute) published an up-dated report on the extent of damage to Ukrainian infrastructure due to the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine.

As part of the project “Russia will pay”, the Institute estimates that total Ukrainian infrastructure losses amount to more than $94 billion, or almost UAH 2.8 trillion, having increased by nearly $2.4 billion over the week.

The biggest losses are in housing stock – which, as a result of the war, has lost 35.2 million square meters, worth $31 billion. The cities of Mariupol, Kharkiv, Chernihiv, Sumy and Rubizhne have suffered the most.
