To intimidate farmers in Kherson region, Russian invaders destroy their crops
In Kherson region, Russian invaders demolished crops to intimidate farmers, and in some cases, farmers had to throw away their harvest instead of selling it for nothing.
The First Deputy Head of the Kherson Regional Council, Yurii Sobolevskyi, informed: “Our farmers are currently the victims of theft, raids, and crop damage. There are already documented cases of invaders burning the harvest of the farmers who refuse to work, especially for Crimea. The Russian occupiers attempt to frighten civilians.”
Sobolevskyi remarked that the crops had to be sold for pennies. It’s already a win if the farmer managed to sell it to a mid-seller at cost. When Russian propaganda depicts Crimea as overflown with goods, the fact is — it robs farmers of Kherson region.
