russia steals about 600,000 tons of products from agricultural enterprises of Ukraine — Ukrainian Agrarian Council

Deputy Chairman of “Ukrainian Agrarian Council” Public Union Denys Marchuk made this statement at Media Center Ukraine — Ukrinform.

“russia stole about 600,000 tons from Ukrainian agricultural enterprises. Products were exported to the occupied Crimea, and then, through ports, Ukrainian products are being exported to international ports. About 100,000 tons of products are known to have already been shipped to Syria,” — he said.

All these facts are known, the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine is opening criminal proceedings into them. The Defense Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense is also documenting this information.

“Such actions by russia have two goals at once — to supply food to their federal districts, especially those that are not agrarian. The second goal is the commercial component. What is exported is worth tens and tens of millions of dollars,” — Denys Marchuk noted.

In practice, farmers are forced to give away goods for nothing, if they refuse, the goods are taken away by force. Another option is when the occupation authorities issue documents on the “nationalization” of Ukrainian property.
