Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/04/2014 -- The Ukrainian real estate sector is suffering severely from the wider economic downturn in light of the ongoing political tensions. Demand in all sub-sectors - office, retail, and industrial - has plummeted with several projects' commissioning being postponed.
