Transport blockade of occupied Donbas costs for Ukraine 1% GDP - Ukrainian PM

Transport blockade of occupied Donbas costs for Ukraine 1% GDP - Ukrainian PMUkrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman has said Ukraine has lost 1% of GDP from the unauthorized blockade of uncontrolled territories in Donetsk and Luhansk region, and said it is important not to allow repetition of such attempts, including a blockade of rail transportation from Russia.

"As a result of the blockade, Ukraine lost 1% of its GDP. It is hundreds of millions of hryvnias, billions of hryvnias that could be paid as wages, could further strengthen the national currency..." the prime minister said on a conference call on Monday.

He stressed that the blockade resulted in the loss of control over all the assets in the territories beyond government control. And now the money previously used to pay taxes to Ukraine's budget will be used to support the illegal armed group's activities, the premier added.
