Exiled Mariupol Mayor Vows to Rebuild Decimated City Despite War Destruction

Vadym Boychenko, the exiled mayor of Mariupol, has promised to rebuild his former city despite the destruction wrought upon it by Russian occupying forces. The seaside city, which was once an economic powerhouse for Ukraine due to its steel industry, saw its final Ukrainian forces withdraw after nearly three months of brutal fighting. Boychenko, who now resides elsewhere in Ukraine, has a multibillion-dollar plan for reconstruction and city revival projects if the Russians are driven out.

Mariupol is one of the most destroyed cities in Ukraine with over 90% of its infrastructure damaged by occupation forces. Nearly 20 hospitals, over 60 schools, and almost 90 cultural sites have been damaged in Mariupol by Russian shelling. More than 50% of high-rise residential buildings have been destroyed, which could potentially amount to war crimes under international humanitarian law. The restoration of critical infrastructure is Boychenko’s first priority and is expected to take two years, however the full plan, called “Mariupol Reborn,” is estimated to cost $15.6 billion.

Mariupol’s steel industry, responsible for 4.5% of Ukraine’s gross domestic product and 7% of the country’s foreign exchange earnings, created approximately 50,000 jobs before the war. The city’s port on the Sea of Azov, one of Ukraine’s busiest shipping lanes exporting products such as coal and steel, was also a targeted by Russia in an attempt to degrade Ukraine’s economy.
