A significant part of the grain stolen by Russian troops from Ukraine is located in the Mediterranean Sea on dry cargo ships under the Russian flag. This is reported by the Main Directorate of Intelligence (GUR) of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.
It is noted that in Polohy, Zaporizhzhia region, grain and sunflower seeds from granaries are being prepared for transportation to Russia. Also, for this purpose, the harvest stored in Enerhodar is seized. A convoy of Russian KAMAZ trucks and DAFs guarded by military personnel was loaded with grain and left in the direction of Kamianka-Dniprovska. The final destination of the convoy, according to intelligence, is the occupied Crimea.
According to the GUR, in the village of Volokhiv Yar, Kharkiv region, collaborators are helping the occupiers to take grain out of the storage sheds. Grain carriers are sent to the Russian border. In addition, 1,500 tons of grain crops were taken out by Krymzernotrans grain carriers from Mala Lepetykha, Kherson region, to the occupied Crimea.
There is also information that, in addition to grain, the occupiers are taking out large amounts of vegetables stolen in Ukraine to Crimea — beets, potatoes, and cabbage.
So far, it is known that a significant part of the grain stolen from Ukraine is on dry cargo ships under the Russian flag in the Mediterranean Sea. The most likely country of destination for the cargo is Syria. From there, grain can be smuggled to other countries in the Middle East.
