The San Cosmas vessel transported 6,500 tons of sunflower stolen from the Zaporizhia region through the port of Feodosiia.
After the attack on the Russian landing ship Novocherkassk in Feodosiia, the Russians began moving the civilian vessels that were on the other side of the pier. Monitoring channels recorded the movement of stolen Ukrainian grain, which Russia sent to Turkey.
The Ukrainian Seaport Authority (USPA) announced this in a statement, the CFTS portal reports.
According to data from the SeaKrime monitoring project, the Tanzanian-flagged bulk carrier San Cosmas loaded a batch of sunflower seeds in the port of Feodosiia and exported it to Turkey on behalf of a company based in the United Arab Emirates.
It is currently known that the Russians stole an additional 6,500 tons of sunflower seeds from the Zaporizhia region in this way.
Investigators have identified the vessel, its cargo, and the companies that are committing war crimes in Ukraine along with the Russians. They also obtained documentary evidence and identified all the people involved in the implementation of the theft scheme.
