If Russia continues massive missile attacks on Ukraine's infrastructure, its economy may shrink by up to 50%.

This was stated by Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal at the Forum on Economic Stability and Reconstruction of Ukraine in Paris, reports Interfax-Ukraine.

"The reduction of Ukraine's economy is expected at the level of 35-40%. If Russia's terrorist activities against our infrastructure continue, then we may lose another 10% to these figures, that is, up to 50% of our GDP," said Shmyhal.

In the fall of 2022, the NBU predicted that Ukraine's GDP would decrease by 32% by the end of the year.

At the time, experts reported that the fall 

was caused by the power outage due to Russian attacks.
