This was one of Putin's main goals, to destroy Ukraine economically. This isn't the only industry that has reported an increase in production. So this is a sign that one of his main goals has failed.

The US is also assisting in attracting new business to Ukraine. They know what Putin's goals are and want to also help defeat him in this economic sector.

The longer this war with Ukraine continues, the more he's going to have to dish out, let alone he was getting a lot of his military equipment produced in Ukraine. That won't help him in the longrun either.

July 1, Ukraine stopped buying the Russian gas, something which came as a total surprise for the Russian company Gazprom that had blackmailed Ukraine for many years cutting gas during frosty winters, political expert Kiril Sazonov writes for Obozrevatel July 1.

Ukraine’s move will not affect the transit of gas via Ukraine to Europe, Naftohaz says.

Ukraine says Russia has charged Ukraine too high a price for gas. In this confrontation with Moscow Ukraine can take a breather as its underground reservoirs are filled with enough gas.

In the past year, Ukraine was able to buy gas from Eastern European countries, radically reducing its dependence on Russia. Now Ukraine buys only a third of its gas from Russia.

The firing came on the heels of an incendiary program ... on state-run television channel Rossia, during which fervently anti-Western host Dmitry Kiselyov denounced White's work as "bringing us [Russia] harm."....
Lobachevsky State University President Yevgeny Chuprunov declined to comment in detail on White's dismissal, simply saying: "These are the times that we're living in," Kommersant reported.

EU 'frustrated' as Russia gas talks break down [in English]
Russia offered Ukraine a price of $247.18 per thousand cubic metres, similar to Poland’s. It also wanted freedom to change the price quarterly based on market shifts.
But Ukraine, which is closer to Russia than Poland, said it should pay less and wanted a fixed winter price....
Russia also says Ukraine should pay for gas it doesn’t need on a “take-or-pay” clause in a 2009 contract.

[2009 contract - I presume this is Tymoshenko. She was expecting Putin to make her President of Ukraine, and signed an agreement for Russian gas at 400 / th c m. And did other stupid things, presumably for a nice payback - allegedly]

[Just checked wikipedia - Tymoshenko was PM from...  18 December 2007 – 4 March 2010 .
So she signed this agreement. At that time, due to the changes in the constitution, the PM had the power, and the President (Yushchenko) could do little. ]
