The economic blockade of Donbas has allowed the Russian Federation to appropriate the Ukrainian enterprises and trade their products in the markets of third countries.

Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman said this during the meeting with representatives of the regional media, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Russian stole our enterprises, having accused Ukraine. I do not care who they belonged to, because they were registered in Ukraine, paid taxes in Ukraine, their accounts were opened in the Ukrainian banks. The Russians got an opportunity to appropriate those enterprises and 100% of their products, such as metal and coal, and now sell these products on the markets of third countries," Groysman said.

The Ukrainian Prime Minister stressed that in such a way the Russian budget would receive billions, which would be further spent to support the Russian troops and militants in the temporarily uncontrolled areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions in eastern Ukraine.

"That did not do good for Ukraine. We lost 1% of GDP," the Prime Minister added.
