That Russia is guilty of crimes against humanity and obligated to huge reparations to Ukraine is clear. Although the human costs of Putin’s war are incalculable, the economic toll is not. Ukrainian Institute of New Virology has developed an algorithm which calculates the current estimated amount of the total damage done to Ukraine from Russia's war in Ukraine that began in February 2014. UIONV estimates this total damage at roughly 29.83 trillion U.S. dollars so far.
Russia will owe Ukraine huge sums to compensate for death and destruction - not just for damage done in the recent weeks and years, but over the past century. We hope the global community would be able to enforce reparations from Russia based on international judicial processes. Whatever the total comes to, Russia should foot the bill.
