In Zaporizhzhia invaders buy up grain harvest for nothing - Fedorov

In the temporarily occupied territories of the Zaporizhzhia region, the invaders are forcing farmers to sell their harvest to a monopoly company and setting very low prices for grain.

This was reported by Melitopol Mayor Ivan Fedorov at a briefing at the Ukraine-Union Media Center.

"Only one monopoly company, which the enemy allegedly calls 'state-owned,' has the right to buy crops grown in the occupied territory. They buy it for Russian rubles, but I'll give you the price in hryvnias: they buy feed wheat for UAH 3 thousand per ton," Fedorov said.

He noted that this is below the cost price, but there is no alternative to delivering the harvest.

As reported, the EU said that by blocking the supply of Ukrainian grain to foreign markets, Russia wants to cynically increase its own profits from grain exports in order to continue to finance its aggressive war against Ukraine.
