Natalia Sokirko, Head of Warehouse and Logistics Real Estate Department:
“After analyzing the information about the destruction of warehouse and logistics facilities in the Kyiv region, we can assume that they were deliberately destroyed by the Russian army in order to break logistics chains and, as a result, create an artificial humanitarian catastrophe for the population. Now we see the destroyed grocery and pharmaceutical warehouse complexes and warehouses distributors of hygienic products of prime necessity.”
In recent years, the demand for warehouse space in Kyiv has remained at a fairly high level. Thus, the destruction of 20% of warehouse space in the Kiev region alone is evidence of the forced relocation of the logistics and warehouse hub to the western region, which is additionally due to demand from Ukrainian companies that have lost warehouse facilities as a result of hostilities and companies interested in diversifying their real estate portfolios. to minimize the risks of destruction of such objects.
