Russians have stolen 400,000 tons of grain from the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine

Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, Russia has exported at least 400,000 tons of grain from the occupied Ukrainian territories, the First Deputy Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine Taras Vysotskyi stated in an interview with Crimea.Reality.

“At the time of [Russian] occupation, there were about 1,5 million tons of grain in these areas, according to elevator registers. And we received information from those territories from Ukrainians about the fact of export. If you add all cases, about 400,000 tons were exported. We will be able to tell what happened to the remaining 1 million tons only after de-occupation,” he said.

Vysotskyi added that according to the Center for Food and Land Use Research of the Kyiv School of Economics (KSE Institute), the losses of Ukrainian agriculture from the full-scale invasion had already reached $ 4.3 billion.
