Lebanon seizes Syrian ship carrying stolen Ukrainian grain

A Syrian ship carrying stolen Ukrainian grain was seized in Lebanon.

“The Public Prosecution seized the ship Laodicea docked in Tripoli port,” LBCI media outlet informs.

It is known that the ship was seized for 72 hours. The Embassy of Ukraine in Lebanon received relevant permission. The Embassy explains that the Russians loaded the ship with grain in the temporarily occupied Crimea on July 27. The ship carries barley taken from the Ukrainian territories occupied by Russia.

Instead, the Russian embassy in Lebanon insists that it allegedly has no information about the ship and calls Ukraine's accusations "false and groundless".
