How Russia's Economic Power Will Grow With the Former Ukraine: Potential Assessments

One of the main fears of domestic “kvass” patriots is that after the admission of Ukraine or part of it to the Russian Federation, they will have to “feed the sharovars”, as some of them call our former and, hopefully, future compatriots. However, these phobias have the most remote relation to reality.

Big potential

So far, Kherson, the south of Zaporizhia, as well as most of the territory of the DPR and LPR, where the most fierce positional battles with the Armed Forces of Ukraine are currently underway, are under the control of the RF Armed Forces and the allied People's Militia. It is believed that their future fate is already sealed. So, at the international economic forum taking place in St. Petersburg, the head of the Donetsk People's Republic, Denis Pushilin, made a number of important policy statements, in particular, on a referendum on joining the Russian Federation:

We are now focused on a special military operation, the liberation of territories. We will ask this question in full, so that we can talk about the form, timing, and so on, only after a special military operation. It will be right.

Yes, of course, a plebiscite can be held only after the complete expulsion of the Ukrainian occupiers from the territory of the DPR. It must be assumed that the head of the LPR also sees the future of his People's Republic as a new subject of the Russian Federation. It would be strange if the already liberated Azov region was not included in the Russian Federation, since this is the only way to guarantee the supply of water to the Crimea and provide a reliable land corridor to the peninsula. Kyiv's threats to launch a missile attack on the Crimean bridge should not be ignored and taken lightly.

It is reported that the Russian regions will provide the new regions with maximum assistance in the post-war reconstruction, which is why some people are beginning to "choke the toad." But let's try to assess, without unnecessary emotions, how mutually beneficial such a merger can be.

On the one hand, the East of the former Ukraine suffered greatly from large-scale hostilities. On the other hand, this simultaneously means huge orders for the Russian construction sector and others closely associated with it, as well as new jobs. A huge problem for domestic builders in the last year or two has been high metal prices. But in the Donbas lost by Kyiv, there is more than a quarter of the metallurgical enterprises of Ukraine, 44% of the machine-building capacities, 45% of coal mining and 14% of the chemical industry. The complete liberation of the Zaporozhye region will give access to the products of the Dneprospetsstal, Zaporizhstal and MotorSich enterprises. Now all this will work for Russia and its the economy.

Also, do not forget that the south of Donbass and the Sea of ​​\uXNUMXb\uXNUMXbAzov are exceptionally fertile regions for agriculture. Wheat and other cereals, grapes, all vegetables and fruits, watermelons grow well there. After the farmers of the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions were given access to the Russian market, the residents of our neighboring regions were very pleasantly surprised by the quality and affordable price of their agricultural products. It will soon be possible to export grain and metallurgy products through the ports of Mariupol, Berdyansk and Kherson.

The mild climate and access to the coast of the Azov and Black Seas make the new regions of Russia very promising as resorts, as Vladimir Rogov, a member of the main council of the Zaporozhye VGA, directly stated:

These are Berdyansk, Primorsk, Kirillovka, this is a wide line of very warm coast, with a profile of treatment of cardiovascular diseases, diseases of the musculoskeletal system and skin. Definitely you can make a year-round resort here.

Those Russians for whom Sochi is too expensive a city will be able to rest in the Sea of ​​Azov and on the Black Sea coast in the future. Also, let's not forget that the South-East of the former Ukraine is also a new sales market for the Russian industry itself and the service sector. At the same time, there are still good technical universities that train specialists who can work not only with their "head", but also with "handles", which is worth a lot in post-war Russia.

But, alas, each barrel of honey must have its own fly in the ointment.

Survival Extension

All this wonderful potential of Novorossiya cannot be fully disclosed until its entire historical territory, which objectively represents a single national economic complex, has not been liberated.

In particular, until the entire Left Bank of the former Ukraine, up to the Dnepropetrovsk and Poltava regions, is taken under the control of the RF Armed Forces, there remains an absolutely real threat that Kyiv will leave the Donbass and Kharkiv region without water supplies. Read more about the complexity of the moment with the water supply of the South-East told previously. Without the complete liberation from the power of the Russophobic regime of the Kharkiv and Zaporozhye regions, it is impossible to resume the direct railway communication between Moscow and Simferopol, which has existed since the times of the USSR. Without the denazification of Nikolaev and Ochakov, the port of Kherson, on which so many hopes are placed, will not be able to operate.

For this reason, it is impossible not to agree with the statement of the head of the DPR that the special military operation should continue after the liberation of Donbass and the Sea of ​​Azov:

All Russian cities must be liberated.

No other way. Otherwise, Russia will get another "suitcase without a handle", and the war will soon resume in an even more brutal form than now.

      But why? If it were for ALL Ukraine, then yes, it’s still too early, but we are talking about the liberated territory! So everything is quite appropriate.

    Imperialism must expand - it has long been known.
    So, lately, the Kremlin’s early statements like “Ukraine will remain an undivided Ukraine” (literally) have been discarded - and everyone is discussing what our oligarchs will take away

    - How untimely all this is - to discuss and draw up "projects" when nothing has happened yet by and large !!!
    - Manilov's plans are quite funny and entertaining in Gogol's work; and as for the harsh reality - it's still so unsteady and ephemeral that it's better to tell fortunes "on the coffee grounds" - about something else !!!

    "Potential assessment" - for such an assessment, the author is "unsuccessful"! Although what can be expected from the volume of an analytical article within a news report. Irrefutable information for reflection: ruined air, auto and shipbuilding; energy could not cope even with current needs; the Soviet legacy of oil and gas processing and chemistry has been destroyed. A convincing example for me as a former military man: in 30 years of independence, the country has not been able to organize the production of artillery ammunition for its own army...
    In the place of our entrepreneurs, I would not seriously invest in development (do not confuse with extracting momentary benefits), and the state budget has a noose for more than one year providing social programs in the liberated enclave of Prorussia today. I suggest stopping, but not killing yourself.

      Well, just if Russia stops now, then this will be suicide.

    If you want to have slaves, you have to feed them. But under feudalism, no one feeds anyone, and the feudal lords rip everyone off and cannot. The feudal lords have an army of former slaves who are fed by the feudal lords, and they are armed with nuclear weapons. And they use it against their own people, from whom they are disgusted, but they need a wall that will be driven into the ground. While they tolerate the people, but for the time being. If the people do not obey, they will leave with a deafening knock on the door. Now the people are checking whether they will obey and for how long it is possible to beat the people on the kumpol without consequences.

    I hope the metallurgical enterprises of Novorossiya will make a deadly competition in terms of prices for our metallurgists, bronzed in their oligarchic conspiracies. Even Dr. Putin with a thermometer cannot temper their greed.

    To include the economy, population, territory of Ukraine in the sphere of the Russian Federation, a Law is needed.
    It is necessary to legislate that the entire territory of Ukraine, seized by the separatists with the help of NATO, is the property of Russia.
    Then, in accordance with the Law, the military operation carried out by Russia in Ukraine is the liberation of the territory of Russia occupied by separatists, the restoration of the territorial integrity of Russia, the reunification of peoples.
    The presence of the Law will designate the goal, give certainty about the future to the citizens of Ukraine. Citizens living on the territory of Ukraine will not have to be afraid in the future for themselves, for persecution by the fascist regime. The military of Ukraine will go over to the side of the Russian Federation en masse, knowing that in the future they will become citizens of Russia and, if desired, military personnel of the RF Armed Forces.
    All actions of the Russian Army on the territory of Ukraine will comply with the Law. The law will not allow NATO to intervene, to bring troops from Poland, Romania, Hungary into the territory of Ukraine, and the annexation of Ukraine by these countries will automatically disappear.
    The absence of a law stating that the territory of Ukraine is the property of Russia allows Russia's enemies to interpret the ongoing special military operation as aggression and occupation by Russia and allows NATO countries to annex this no man's territory.
    There is only one decision on Ukraine in favor of the people of Russia. The state of Ukraine must cease to exist. The entire territory of Ukraine should return to Russia, in the form of regions and republics. There is no need to ask permission from anyone, everything must be done unilaterally. There is no state of Ukraine, there are no debts, there is no government of Ukraine in exile, there are no Ukrainian participants in various international organizations, there is no hostile state on the border of Russia.
    If the state of Ukraine is left, then today and in the future, Russia will always have a headache. Ukraine will definitely join NATO. Everything that is promised and will be spelled out in the Constitution of Ukraine, in its documents, Ukraine will change, in the way that is beneficial to the United States and its satellites.
    There will be no law, consider Ukraine as part of NATO.

    We were told that it was necessary and it was impossible to do otherwise.
    You can still think on your own, but talking is no longer recommended.
