  • W artykule zidentyfikowano straty gospodarcze spowodowane działaniami wojennymi na przykładzie terytorium obwodu kijowskiego na Ukrainie na użytkach rolnych (gruntach ornych). Dzięki dobranym wskaźnikom obliczenia pozwalają uzyskać kolejne ujednolicone materiały do tych samych obliczeń na podobnych obszarach innych regionów Ukrainy dotkniętych działaniami wojennymi.
Aim of the study:
The aim of the study is a determination of economic losses on agricultural lands (arable land) that have been affected by hostilities and need further measures to demine them and to make them eligible for safe food production in order to resolve acute humanitarian and food crisis.

Material and methods:
The generally accepted methods of scientific research are used: monographic, statistical, analytical, method of comparison, method of interpolation, forecasting, abstract-logical and engraving.

Results and conclusions:
Economic losses caused by hostilities on the example of the agricultural lands (arable land) in Kyivska oblast in Ukraine were calculated. The spatial aspect of administrative-territorial reform carried out in Ukraine in terms of changes to the number of administrative districts and their area is considered. It was made to be able to work with the data regarding agricultural lands collected for both new and old administrative-territorial divisions of Kyivska oblast. The approximate term of demining works on territories affected by hostilities is considered, taking into account various degree of the shelling intensity and demining works complexity. The unearned income of agricultural producers within cereals, legumes and oilseeds in Kyivska oblast were calculated. The calculations of economic losses associated with the cost of demining works and the impossibility of growing crops in Kyivska oblast were made. Results obtained for Kyivska oblast were interpolated in order to determine the approximate area of arable land affected by hostilities and therefore economic losses on these lands throughout Ukraine.
