The Ukrainian government estimated Monday the economic damages losses from the Russian invasion, which has been underway for just over one month, at nearly $565 billion.
Economy Minister Yulia Svyrydenko said on Facebook that the $564.9-billion (515.8-billion-euro) estimate includes immediate damage plus expected losses in trade and economic activity.

“It should be noted that every day the numbers change and unfortunately they are increasing,” said Svyrydenko, who is also a deputy prime minister.
Damage to public and private property — with Russian forces resorting to fierce bombardments that have levelled some cities as their invasion, which began February 24, has stalled — was the biggest element.
Svyrydenko said public infrastructure losses — including damaged roads, railways and airports — totalled $119 billion, while damage to private property including housing was up to $90.5 billion.
Damages and losses suffered by private firms were put at $80 billion.
Svyrydenko estimated gross domestic product in 2022 would be down by $112 billion, which would be a drop of more than 55 percent of Ukraine’s economic activity last year.
Ukraine’s government will likely miss out on $48 billion in tax revenue, $54 billion in foreign direct investment will likely not materialise.
