On June 3, two small bulk carriers of the "river-sea" class began to be loaded at the grain terminal in the Sevastopol Bay. This is reported by the correspondent of Krym.Realii.

On the northeastern shore of Dokovaya Bay, which is part of the large Sevastopol Bay, at the berth of the grain terminal "Avlita" there are two bulk carriers, the names of which cannot be read due to the big distance. A white haze hangs over the ships - this is usual for the grain loading.

On June 1, the correspondent observed another, larger bulk carrier being stuffed with grain.

Earlier, Krym.Realii reported that convoys of trucks were transporting Ukrainian grain to Crimea, seized by Russia in the occupied territory of Zaporizhzhia and Kherson regions.

Also, satellite images of the American company Maxar were published, which recorded the loading of grain in the port of Sevastopol on May 19 and 21, 2022.

In recent weeks, Krym.Realii has repeatedly reported that bulk carriers were loading at the grain terminal in Sevastopol.

On May 10, Ukrainian intelligence reported that Russia continues to export grain stolen in Ukraine to its territory and the annexed Crimea.

On May 24, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba urged the world not to buy stolen Ukrainian grain from Russia and not become complicit in Russian crimes.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said that as of May 21, Russia blocked 22 million tons of food in Ukrainian ports, gradually stealing it, taking it out, and trying to sell it.

On May 27, the head of the Kherson regional military administration, Gennady Laguta, said that some farmers of the Kherson region agreed to cooperate with the Russian occupying forces and help the Russians to export grain from the region.

The prosecutor's office of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol has launched criminal proceedings due to the export of Ukrainian grain stolen by Russia through the annexed Crimea.

The Russian authorities have not publicly commented on the allegations of the Ukrainian authorities regarding the export of grain from Ukraine.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen believes that Russia uses food supplies as a "weapon".
