Only Ukraine has this: the uniqueness of our land and its importance for the whole world
Ukrainian resources are of enormous global importance. It is not without reason that their total value is estimated not even in billions but in trillions of dollars. Find out more about the resources of Ukraine that are critical for the whole world
Ukraine is rich in natural resources that are important for the whole world. Some of them are found only in Ukraine and are not found anywhere else. Let us tell you what kind of resources we are talking about.
It is worth noting that Ukraine is located in the center of Europe. Due to its geographical location, the country has a wide variety of natural resources.
One of Ukraine's most famous and valuable resources is its black soil, which is considered to be the most fertile soil in the world. Thanks to these soils, Ukraine is one of the largest exporters of grain crops. Black soil is also of great importance for agriculture, as it allows for high yields and ensures high quality products.
As you know, before the full-scale war unleashed by russia, Ukraine was considered the largest food supplier in Europe.
Our country is also rich in various types of forests, including the Carpathian spruce, which is grown only in western Ukraine. These forests are of great ecological importance as they protect the soil, control water levels and provide shelter for many animals.
Another important natural resource in Ukraine is clean water, which is abundant in rivers and lakes throughout the country. This makes Ukraine one of the largest exporters of water in the world.
Important resources in Ukraine that are not found elsewhere in the world
Many people know that Ukraine is also rich in various types of minerals, including iron, manganese, titanium, non-ferrous metals, and thermal springs. These resources are of great importance to industry and are among Ukraine's main exports.
One of the country's most valuable resources is black metallurgical ore, known as silica iron ore. It is the main component in the production of steel, which is of great importance to the global economy. Ukraine is one of the largest producers of this ore in the world.
In addition, the Ukrainian territory is rich in gold deposits located in Zakarpattia and Donbas. On the European continent, Ukraine is one of the largest gold producers and boasts great potential in this area.
As you know, our country has always been famous for titanium production - this resource is used to produce lightweight and durable alloys used in aviation and other industries.
In addition, Ukraine has large reserves of coal, natural gas and oil, which play an important role in energy production and other industries.
How much are Ukraine's resources worth?
According to Forbes, the value of all of Ukraine's mineral resources is currently estimated at $14.8 trillion. More than 70% of the total amount is accounted for in just three regions - Donetsk, Dnipro and Luhansk.
Coal accounts for 62% of the total value of mineral resources, iron ore for 14%, and each of the other assets for less than 5%. The total volume of mineral resources is 111 billion tons.
However, despite the fact that Ukraine possesses such valuable natural resources, many of them are endangered by the aggression that the russian army continues to wage against Ukraine. Therefore, protecting the country's natural resources is an important task not only for Ukraine itself, but also for the entire world.
We remind you! Earlier, we told you that Ukraine is rich in history and cultural monuments. In particular, the UNESCO list includes many Ukrainian monuments of high historical, cultural, and architectural significance.
