Ukraine has suffered huge economic damage from Russia's temporary occupation of Crimea, with total potential losses estimated at more than $100 billion.

"Ukraine has suffered huge economic damage from the occupation of Crimea. To date, the experts estimate total potential losses at more than $100 billion. These are lost natural resources, lost state assets, lost industry and, most importantly, negative consequences for people suffering from the policy of the aggressor state," Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal said at the inaugural summit of the Crimea Platform, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

Therefore, one of the priority tasks now is to force the Russian Federation to start paying for its actions by enforcing the decisions of international courts, the PM stressed.

"We already have many positive examples when Ukrainian public and private structures won the relevant lawsuits," Shmyhal added.

As reported, the inaugural summit of the Crimea Platform – President’s initiative for the de-occupation of Crimea – is held in Kyiv on August 23. Forty-six delegations take part in the summit.
