The Russians seize the elevators in the occupied territories due to the refusal of the locals in cooperation

July 18, 2022

Russians continue to steal Ukrainian grain, for this they “nationalize” elevators.

Thus, in the Zaporizhzhia region the occupiers created the “State Grain Company” with 20 elevators on a balance sheet. In fact, they stole these elevators because their real owners did not agree to cooperate with them.

We have already reported that the majority of Russians offer farmers two options: either to sell grain at a fixed price per ton, while the determined price is several times lower than the market price, or to give off the farm. With such tactics the occupiers export up to 100,000 tons every month just from the Zaporizhzhia region. Most of the grain goes to Egypt, Turkey and the countries of the Middle East.
