Moscow controls 63 of Ukraine's coal deposits, 11 of its oil painting, 20 of its natural gas, 42 of its essence, and 33 of its rare worlds.
Russia now controls at least$12.4 trillion worth of Ukraine's crucial natural coffers, including energy and mineral deposits, according to an analysis for The Washington Post by SecDev.
Still, Kyiv would lose nearly two- thirds of its deposits, the report said, If the Kremlin succeeds in adding Ukrainian land seized during Russia's irruption.
Grounded on SecDev's review of,209 deposits, Moscow controls 63 of Ukraine's coal, 11 of its oil painting, 20 of its natural gas, 42 of its essence, and 33 of its rare worlds, including crucial minerals like lithium.
Some of that was seized during Russia's preemption of Crimea in 2014 or the war with Russia- backed secessionists in eastern Ukraine.
But since its irruption began in February, Russia has steadily increased its advance into Ukraine while catching the country's profitable fortresses.
Using a census from SecDev and Ukrainian assiduity, the Washington Post reported that Russia has seized 41 coal fields, 27 natural gas spots, 14 propane spots, nine oil painting fields, six iron ore deposits, as well as several spots for titanium, zirconium, strontium, lithium, uranium, and gold.
While Ukraine is known as a top exporter of grains, the report said it also possesses 117 of the 120 most extensively used minerals and essence, while also serving as a top source of fossil energies.
Ukraine still has control over utmost of its oil painting ans gas reserves. But the vast maturity of its natural resource wealth that is under the Kremlin's control is comprised of coal deposits.
SecDev estimated that about 30 billion tons of hard coal deposits worth$11.9 trillion are in Russian- controlled corridor of Ukraine.
