SUGAR LAND--February 23, 2022--Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--Following months of diplomatic jousting, Russian President Vladimir Putin sent troops into two Moscow-backed breakaway enclaves of eastern Ukraine, which call themselves the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) and Luhansk People's Republic (LPR). Putin says he is recognizing the 'independence' of the two areas, which are parts of the larger Donetsk and Luhansk regions that otherwise remain under the control of Ukrainian forces. But Western officials believe this could be a pretext for Putin to launch a broader attack on Ukraine. Industrial Info is tracking roughly $4.5 billion worth of active industrial projects in Donetsk and Luhansk.
