Occupiers take another batch of 1,500 t of stolen grain from Mariupol port

Russian invaders took another batch of stolen Ukrainian grain – 1,500 tonnes - from the port of temporarily occupied Mariupol.

Mariupol Mayor Petro Andriushchenko said this in a post on Telegram, Ukrinform reports.

"Today another fifteen thousand tonnes of Ukrainian grain left the Mariupol port. The ship is now en route to the canal. Of course, again without identification," Andriushchenko wrote.

He noted that the traffic from the port has accelerated - approximately one ship departs every three days.

"However, all the vessels are of small capacity, but the trend is not very good. All vessels, according to the information, belong to RosKapStroy, which is de facto controlled by the Ministry of Defense,” Andriushchenko clarified.

As reported, the Russian ship Mezhdurechensk, loaded with Ukrainian grain, left the port of temporarily occupied Mariupol for Rostov-on-Don in early August.
