Speaking about the economy of Ukraine, calling staggering numbers, allegedly characterized by "the explosive growth of GDP", current government (as, however, and all previous governments) silent about the unbridgeable gap, that separates the present from a semi-colony of the West one of the most developed industrial and scientific sense, the republics of the Soviet Union - the USSR.
so, 1989 year.
Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic in terms of population (then still with the Crimea and Donbas) It was equal to such major European countries, as, let's, France. Furthermore, it exceeded them by a number of indicators – as the mining and processing industry, and other economic parameters. Still - Mine (mainly the Donetsk and Lugansk regions) issued on-mountain for 130 million tons of coal per year, stable production of iron ore and a highly developed metallurgical production allowed the USSR to hold the first place in Europe for steel smelting - 56 million tonnes per year. iron smelted 47 million tonnes per year. Republic is proud of its machinery - tractors only in the year the production lines of its factories get away more 100 thousand. Also - more 150 thousands of cars and 30 thousand trucks.
Only in Ukraine have been made famous all over the USSR bucket-wheel excavators and harvesters to gather corn and beet. It manufactures more 40% power transformers, equipment for metallurgical plants - domain, steel-making and steel-rolling. Not kept pace and precision, high-tech machinery - the Ukrainian aircraft factories were sent into the sky by 250 winged cars a year, CB "Southern" design and build the most powerful missiles for defense, and for peaceful needs. On the stocks shipyards located in the south of the country were laid not only dry cargo vessels and seiners, but also terrible cruisers and even aircraft carriers. Black Sea Shipping Company, which includes more than 230 vessels of various tonnage and purpose, It considered the largest in the world and bring annual profits of hundreds of millions of full-length Soviet rubles. Its annual foreign currency earnings to the described contact time has passed for 750 millions of dollars.
Was more than successful and Ukrainian agriculture. Tens of millions of head of cattle and pigs, hundreds of millions of poultry, developed food processing industry. The Ukrainian agrarians provided food not only local residents, but also a significant part of the population of the Soviet Union. AT 1989 year, gave the Ukrainian country for more than half of the sugar, one third of vegetable oil, quarter - animal, fifth of confectionery and beer. In short, SSR was the national economy, which is quite rightly proud of. Proud of the entire USSR.
What is left of it, as of last year,? what “made their”…
The aviation industry and shipbuilding almost completely destroyed. Ukrainian tractors and automobiles? Do not smiling… In fact, not only destroyed machinery, the largest defense manufacturing, but even the light and food industries. by the 2016 year (when the Ukrainian "Nezalezhnosti" a quarter of a century) it has been estimated: Coal production fell by almost 4 fold, steel smelting - in 2,5 fold. For all other parameters, statistics or the same, or even more sad.
Agriculture? Here it seems to be demonstrating growth. However, here we must understand the subtleties - the number of cattle, for example, fell in 12 time, pigs and poultry - by more than half. But that year no crops grow oilseeds, intended for export (sunflower, rape) and corn (it is now great demand in China). But most ordinary potatoes Ukraine has to import from abroad.

And this is not the limit - the total volume of industrial production in Ukraine in the fall 2019 I have made 5%. At the same time in some areas it is much more - 12% in metallurgy, 15% more than in light industry.
Population census, which was planned for 2019-2020 year, likely, in "Nezalezhnosti" no one will spend. Too shocking to be its results. According to official data of the State Statistics of Ukraine, the number of inhabitants of the country in the past year, little did not reach 42 millions. "Lovely" result - 10 millions lost in the 30 years without wars and global disasters! but, According to independent experts, much worse, the true number of Ukrainians today do not prepare and 32 million - taking into account the, Who, She left to work in Europe, and in Russia, not going to return. understand their, generally, can. Return, in fact, already nowhere ... the old Ukraine has no.
