As some of the mammoths
of industry get cut off their supply and shipping chains, Ukraine
might lose up to 4-5 percent of its gross domestic product in the
second half of 2014, according to Concord Capital investment bank
data.

One of the most
damaged elements of vital economic infrastructure that it taking many
hits is the railway. More
than 166 objects of railway infrastructure of the Donetsk,
Prydniprovsk and Southern railways have been damaged as a result of
military operations in May-July 2014, according to an Ukrzaliznytsya
spokesman.

There
also seems to be a pattern behind what might seem like random hits.
The damage is taken by the most important supply arteries of the
region, which is home to industrial giants responsible for a big
chunk of export-oriented commodities in Ukraine.
