According to “Reuters”, current satellite images have allowed the US government to claim that Russian troops have damaged a number of grain storage facilities in eastern Ukraine since February 2022. The purpose of the aggressor’s attacks on food storage facilities in Ukraine is also recognized by a number of experts.

The aggressor also continues to blockade the ports of Ukraine, aimed at stopping the export of grain, and ships, chartered by Ukrainian agricultural companies were subjected to attacks from the Russian Navy. Russia will seek to cause a food crisis in countries, dependent on Ukrainian products in order to “shatter” the coalition of civilized countries that have condemned Russian aggression.

At the same time, in the occupied territories of southern Ukraine, Russian punishers are forcibly exporting the discovered food stocks to the Crimea and are trying to “reorient” the producers of the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions, whose land and capacities are controlled by the Russian army, to the peninsula.

More, Russian propaganda claims that there is allegedly a “famine in Ukraine”, which is obviously not true. Since the Ukrainian government has already announced the successful sowing in March 2022 on 80% of the area, relative to 2021, the actions of the aggressor will not cause a food crisis in mainland Ukraine itself.

Any way the attacks of the aggressor on the agricultural sector of Ukraine need to be assessed by international organizations, including the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.
