According to the latest figures, Russia's war has damaged or destroyed over 150,000 residential buildings, including houses, apartment buildings, and dormitories, totaling $53.6 billion in damages. Damages to infrastructure are estimated at $36.2 billion.

These new figures include for the first time damages caused to Ukraine's forests, KSE said in its report, totaling $4.5 billion.
