Russia’s attack, in addition to human casualties and economic losses, also produces huge infrastructure destruction in Ukraine. Enterprises, critical facilities and some cities have been completely destroyed. This creates not only a situational shock for the population and the economy but also complicates the post-war recovery of Ukraine.
The infrastructure of Ukraine in the regions bordering the EU countries suffered the least from the actions of the Russian invaders. However, its development should also be a priority for the post-war recovery of the Ukrainian economy and state. After all, in the context of integration into the EU and the impossibility of conducting business relations with Russia, infrastructure aimed at the West can become a lead power for the modernization and development of the rest of the country.
More ideas and information about the possibilities of infrastructure development in the border regions of Ukraine and EU countries are in the speech of Zinoviy Broyde (Centre EcoResource) during The 3rd Romanian-Ukrainian Civil Society Forum for Dialogue and Cooperation.
