Dnipropetrovsk region at war: how does the region live during a full-scale invasion of the Russian Federation?

Starting from February 2022, the region has turned into a real fortress for people and businesses from the Southeast. Here, the infrastructure damaged as a result of hostilities is being actively restored, and modern residential complexes with the necessary social infrastructure are also being built. Passenger transportation operates stably, humanitarian and military aid is transported, and international evacuation routes run daily.

The economy of Dnipropetrovsk region is traditionally shaped mainly by the industrial sector, and the region is characterized by a high level of development of both mining, metallurgical, chemical, and light and food industries.

The branches of the agro-industrial complex of the region have a high export capacity, and the most popular products are fats, oils and cereals. This year, farmers worked under enemy fire, risking their lives while sowing the fields. In the past six months alone, the invaders’ rockets destroyed several hundred hectares of wheat, rapeseed and other crops in the fields of the region. However, the sowing campaign was successfully completed, and the volume of grain at the time of harvest is expected at the level of more than 3 million tons.

The service sector shows a gradual growth trend every year. Among the enterprises there are world-famous companies, as well as some of the best institutions of higher education in the region and the country. Exports are mainly represented by transport and IT services.

Leading enterprises of the construction sector mainly specialize in construction, production of glass, ceramics, paints and metal-plastic windows.

In order to expand own production, 25 projects from communities and businesses of the region are proposed, as well as the territory of industrial parks with a total area of ​​337 ha and the territory of industrial purpose with a total area of ​​more than 500 ha.

The region maintains an economic and military front and takes care of those who lost their homes due to enemy aggression. The region meets the social needs of forcibly displaced persons and their children, and also offers objects for reconstruction and land plots for future modular housing.
