The Russian government has to pay a large sum of money for the destroyed infrastructure of the Donbas, says Oleksandr Borovyk, Deputy Minister for Economic Development of Ukraine, to the TV channel 5 Kanal, Joinfo.ua reports.
"At some point, Russia will pay. We need to count, we must be prepared and we must lobby wherever possible," he said.
According to him, Ukraine should carry out investigations to establish the extent of compensation that can reach up to 350 billion dollars. "When Iraq invaded Kuwait, the UN Compensation Commission decided that they owed 320 billion. If we compare the duration of this aggression to the Russian aggression against us – it is almost commensurable," noted Borovyk.
