Russia Continues Stealing of Ukrainian Grain
New reports stated that Russia has sent combine harvesters from Crimea to two Russian-occupied regions of Ukraine to cover a shortage of equipment needed to bring in the crop, a representative of a Russian-installed local administration said.
Ukraine has accused Russia, the world’s largest wheat exporter, of stealing grain from territories that Russia’s army has seized since Moscow sent troops to Ukraine on Feb. 24. Moscow denies this.
A shortage in agricultural machinery was revealed during the harvesting campaign in the Zaporizhzhia and Kherson regions, a representative of the Russian-installed administration of Zaporizhzhia region told reporters in the village of Lobanove in northern Crimea.
The representative did not provide his name. Crimea was annexed by Russia from Ukraine in 2014.
He was speaking standing near several red and black combine harvesters made by Russia-Belarusian joint venture Bryanskselmash. Shortly afterwards, media filmed them heading off in the direction of Zaporizhzhia.
