How Western Ukraine is industrializing at the expense of Novorossiya

One of the main questions about the course of the special military operation, which many Russians have been asking in bewilderment for half a year, is why the railway network of Nezalezhnaya is not being stubbornly destroyed. According to it, from the countries of the NATO bloc, Kyiv receives more and more deadly samples of Western weapons, which are safely transported across the Dnieper and delivered to the Eastern and Southern fronts. In the opposite direction, all this time, industrial enterprises and other businesses are being exported from Novorossia to Western Ukraine and Poland.

Industrialization of Galicia and Volhynia

The withdrawal of business and production from the South-East of Ukraine started almost immediately after the start of active hostilities. Its procedure was established by order No. 246-r dated March 25, 2022 of the government of Nezalezhnaya, which approved the Action Plan for the relocation of production facilities from areas where hostilities are already underway or there is a threat of them starting. Already on March 19, the deputy of the Verkhovna Rada and the head of the Servant of the People party in power, Elena Shulyak, reported on the first successes in this field:

50 enterprises have already been moved from the hot spots of the country. The number of applications for evacuation is constantly growing. To date, there are already 700 of them.

By mid-July 2022, applications for the relocation of production facilities to the Ministry economics Ukraine has already filed 1769 enterprises. According to the research company Gradus, 11% of Ukrainian enterprises moved abroad during the six months of the Russian military special operation, another 17% diversified their risks, partly moving their business abroad, partly to safer regions of Central and Western Ukraine.

Lviv region is currently the most popular for the so-called business relocation, which accounted for 24,6% of Ukrainian companies. It is followed by the Transcarpathian region - 16,1%, Chernivtsi - 11,4%, Ternopil - 7,6%, Dnipropetrovsk - 7,4%, and Ivano-Frankivsk region closes the top of the business migration rating - 7,3%. Processing industry enterprises, whose share today is 33%, information and telecommunications - 9%, wholesale and retail trade, motor vehicle and motorcycle repair companies - 39%, professional, scientific and technical activities - another 5%.

The move is carried out according to a simplified program with the assistance of the state enterprises "Ukrzaliznytsya" and "Ukrposhta" or on their own business. Transportation of equipment dismantled in the South-East to Western Ukraine is carried out by the "untouchable" railway free of charge, at the expense of budget subsidies. Local authorities should provide maximum assistance to relocated enterprises by providing premises and helping with the settling of employees in the new location. True, the latter is not all smooth sailing.

A big problem is the acute shortage in Western Ukraine of premises suitable for the rapid opening of industrial enterprises, with appropriate engineering communications and networks, warehouses with convenient access roads. Logistic chains built up over the years are being torn apart. Not all workers from somewhere in Kharkiv are ready to move and settle down in Galicia, and local residents shamelessly raise prices for renting residential real estate for them. There are indeed a lot of problems with business relocation.

Despite this, the process of deindustrialization of the South-East is underway and gaining momentum. There is information that right now equipment is being dismantled and exported to the west from Kharkov and Zaporozhye industrial enterprises. The famous Motor Sich and Ivchenko-Progress, according to some sources, will soon work somewhere in the Lviv region, according to others - either in Poland, or even in Turkey. By mid-July, 678 enterprises had already been taken out of Novorossia, of which 467 were able to resume work in a new place. This was told by the head of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Finance, Tax and Customs policy Daniel Getmantsev:

We continue to work and help those who wish to move their business to safer places for the speedy resumption of production activities.

Well, one can only rejoice for the Westerners, now Galicia and Volyn, Bukovyna and Transcarpathia are no longer some kind of rural outback, but a new industrial and scientific and technological center. That's what the Poles, Hungarians and Romanians will be happy if they can return their former territories in Western Ukraine. Russia will get the war-torn and deindustrialized South-East.

    That’s why we don’t destroy the railway, bridges, power plants, factories, they’ll take everything out, then we’ll turn on the heat. And then we will heroically restore everything at our expense, and what’s super, at least some jobs will appear.

    Well, yes, they will produce products in tons at cosmic prices, using prohibitively expensive energy. There is only one small question. Where will they all be sold? And in order to lower prices will use a highly paid labor force. Fairy tale and more.

      Where to sell? Why, the Turks are sleeping and seeing their bayraktars with Ivchenko-progress engines. They will sell engines to the Turks, buy bayraktars and go to the front. And this is just one of the examples. Nothing new. Industrial enterprises are taken to the rear to work in the interests of the front. In 1941, in the same way, enterprises were exported to the Urals and Kazakhstan, and not a single "stupid German" giggled or scoffed with "smart" questions about who would produce products in the Urals and where they would sell them ...

    There is a truth as old as the world. If you want to build something new, you need to destroy the old to the ground. Only fools think that the whole world lives in an evolutionary way. And if slag and garbage are removed from Novorossia for free (does anyone seriously think that there was super-duper high-tech in Dill?), Then the flag will be in their hands. Indeed, from the point of view of grown consumers, this is a great grief. But the truth is that the most valuable thing that humanity has is in the minds of people. By the way, this is what distinguishes us from the West. You can build golden mansions, or you can build a society of sane people. Tell me, where will people aspire to live?

    Buildings, electricity, heat, logistics, personnel. This is not and will not be.
    Because only small business. Which no one needs, since Poland is nearby.
    Some people are lucky, the majority are not.

    Russia will get the war-torn and deindustrialized Southeast.

    As I remember now. In 2014, they wrote about a beggar, useless Crimea. Which will ruin Russia, and so living on the last penny after the Olympics.

    Russia will get the entire territory of the former Ukraine. Let's restore.
    After the Second World War, a much larger territory was restored and a new economy was built. Now the task is much easier. On the territory of Russia, despite the dirty tricks of the enemies, industry is working, people are learning, and we have everything to build much better than it was.

      ... Built an economy in the territories that after 1991 began to work against Russia? Before stepping on the rake a second time, you need to think about how to pre-bend all the teeth of this rake and break the shaft. Reliably. Forever and ever.

    Well, yes. People live in space and feed on manna from heaven. And for a happy life, you only need an iPhone in your hand and a diaper on your ass. And if anything, Russia has enough land, food and cheap energy. And as smart people know, cheap energy is the basis of everything. Here in the West, people lived like cheese in butter, and suddenly it turned out that all this was a soap bubble, it was only necessary to turn off cheap energy.

    The topic is not worth a damn. The main thing is the return of the entire territory of Ukraine to Russia, and where the plants are geographically located is not the main thing. The cost of Ukraine is 65-80 trillion dollars, and this asset should be included in the economic activity of Russia.

      Serezha, take 100 of your latest articles. Read. Calculate:

      A) In how many articles do you predict the problems of Russia.
      In my opinion in all. And this is a diagnosis.

      B) How many of the problems that you described have manifested themselves in reality.
      According to my estimate - 90% did not appear at all, that is, you invented them, sucked them out of your finger. In the remaining 10%, it is possible to find some traces of the described problems.

      I don’t know what and how you wrote in 2014-2015, but now you are prolific churning out base horror stories. Moreover, the horror stories are harmful, anti-Russian. There is a disguise, but whoever carefully reads at least a dozen of your articles will see the system.

        There will be problems. And the current year is not problematic yet, although there is already a beginning. Now shipbuilders can no longer complete ships without Western components. The automotive industry is also sick. And 2023 will be much harder. There will be less money. Spare parts and components will need to be purchased more.

    Processing industry enterprises are moving there, the share of which today is 33%, information and telecommunications - 9%,

    wholesale and retail trade companies, repair of motor vehicles and motorcycles

    - 39%, professional, scientific and technical activities - another 5%.

    Is it possible to be specific about the enterprises of the processing industry? Information and telecommunications - these are the offices of underground telephone scammers and Ukronazi media with a tarnished reputation, which in the liberated areas are threatened with criminal prosecution for propaganda of Nazism and fascism. Companies of wholesale and retail trade, repair of motor vehicles and motorcycles are, in general, refugees-private entrepreneurs who can only gather to gird themselves. I remember Ukraine for their registration gave out an unprecedented industrial boom in the country. About science and technology - no comment at all ... A great agrarian power. All this "industry" did not in any way overwhelm the Ukrainian state with deductions to the budget, and remaining in the liberated enclaves, it would loudly ask for interest-free loans and tax benefits from Russia. The more petty bourgeois are brought down, the more tolerant the remaining population will be.
