Kiev is not what is meant by the West of Ukraine. The most economically
developed areas of the country, since Soviet times, are the central
region (Kiev), Kharkiv (major aircraft/helicopter and military
industries), Dnepropetrovsk and Donbas.  This is clearly illustrated by
the map (in green) at

Western Ukraine is mostly agricultural, a major asset in Soviet times,
but not so much in today.  Kagarlitsky is generally write, when he
describes the West, Center and East economic division.
