Russian invaders expropriate farmers’ crops in the temporarily occupied parts of Ukraine
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine strongly condemns Russia’s criminal actions related to the so-called ‘expropriation’ of farmers’ crops in the temporarily occupied parts of Kherson region.
“By stealing grain, which the invaders refer to as ‘expropriation,’ Russia is following in the footsteps of Stalinists and Nazis,” Ukrainian MFA said.
The Foreign Ministry of Ukraine stressed that looting of grain from Kherson region, as well as blocking shipments from Ukrainian ports and planting mines on maritime navigation routes, threaten the world’s food security. The diplomats reminded that Ukraine provides food to almost 400 million people worldwide as Ukrainian grain is traditionally exported to Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia.
