Grain from the Zaporozhye region is sold to the Middle East and Africa, and also, despite the sanctions, through intermediaries to North America. About this on the air of the TV channel “Russia-24” said a member of the main council of the military-civilian administration of the region, Vladimir Rogov.
“We have a good harvest <…> All granaries are loaded, and agricultural producers need to sell grain in order to store fresh grain. Therefore, we began to look for sales markets, and rather quickly, in addition to the Russian sales market, we agreed with representatives of the Middle East, Africa, North America, which scares us with sanctions, but, nevertheless, our grain is bought with joy— understandable, through intermediaries and cunning schemes, & mdash; he said.
According to him, today there are about 1.5 million tons of grain in storage in the Zaporozhye region.
The Russian military took control of the Kherson region and part of the Zaporozhye region. Pro-Russian civil-military administrations were appointed in the regions. Under the control of the Russian military is the southern and central part of the Zaporozhye region, the regional center remains under the control of Ukraine.
After Russia began hostilities in Ukraine, the country's authorities repeatedly accused Moscow of stealing grain. On May 30, Deputy Minister of Agriculture of Ukraine Taras Vysotsky said that Russia had exported about 0.5 million tons of grain from the territories of Donetsk, Lugansk, Kherson, Zaporozhye and Kharkiv regions.
Russian authorities “grain theft” repeatedly denied. At the same time, Moscow emphasized that it is the Ukrainian side that prevents the export of grain from the southern regions of Ukraine, as it mines the Black Sea ports. At the end of May, the Ministry of Defense announced the opening of corridors for the exit of foreign ships from ports on the Black and Azov Seas. President Vladimir Putin also assured that Russia is ready to facilitate the unimpeded passage of ships with grain.
