Social-Economic Life in the Donbas


Brian Milakovsky works a consultant for international projects on economic recovery in the Donbas and writes about the economy of that region for outlets such as the Kennan Institute, the National Interest and OpenDemocracy Russia. He has been working in Ukraine and Russia since 2009 on ecological and development issues. His most recent article is “On the Edge: War and Industrial Crisis in Luhansk Oblast.”
