The occupiers continue to plunder the temporarily captured territories. One of the “favorite” routes is Mariupol – Taganrog.
Along this route, the enemy is taking away looted grain, as well as scrap metal from the destroyed cities, in particular from the same Mariupol. The export of building materials, namely those that the enemy receives in the process of dismantling the houses he destroyed in Mariupol, was also recorded.
Previous reports stated that the occupation administration of the Zaporizhia region sold 300,000 tons of grain, oil and leguminous plants in 2022. Gauleiters said that 10 branches of the State Grain Operator were created to receive agricultural products in the region, which then resold the grain.
In fact, the “state grain enterprise” is nothing more than a cover. The company buys grain from farmers at TOT at minimum prices; if they refuse, the grain is “nationalized”. Later, this company transferred the grain to structures related to the occupiers, and they resold it at market prices. That is, in fact, the Russians stole Ukrainian grain, and all the profit was taken by the Gauleiter and protégés of the Kremlin in the region.
