Russians Exporting Stolen Corn Through Berdiansk Seaport
The occupiers continue to appropriate Ukrainian grain.
Russian invaders continue to steal agricultural products in the temporarily occupied territories in the Zaporizhia region.
Zaporizhia City announced this in a statement on its website, the CFTS portal reports.
The occupiers are currently attempting to export the stolen corn harvest through the Berdiansk seaport. According to the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, they are illegally loading corn seized from Ukrainian citizens onto a barge.
As reported recently, Russian occupiers continue to export wheat from Ukraine illegally through the Berdiansk port. “Enemy tugs were seen pulling a Russian self-propelled barge loaded with wheat from the waters of the seaport in the city of Berdiansk, Zaporizhia region,“ the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces said in March this year.
As reported earlier, Russian occupiers sent the first ship loaded with 7,000 tons of stolen Ukrainian grains from the port of Berdiansk in June 2022 after capturing the city.
The Russians appropriated the Nova Khortytsia company’s dockside grain elevator in Berdiansk, the Asket Shipping company’s loading complex in the Berdiansk port, and the grain elevators of the Kernel, Optimus, and other grain traders in the city.
