According to the report, the looted steel is delivered directly to Russian industrial regions, which are used for local production. And the grain is sent directly to Turkey or Syria and sometimes passes through Russian ports to hide its origin.

In subsequent reports, ISRP will also present its findings on mitigating the effects of this looting - particularly, mechanisms to transfer Russian assets to Ukraine, which are frozen around the world.

As you know, Russia steals Ukrainian products at the state level: the invaders restored the functionality of the Mariupol port and returned electricity and water supply to be able to export even more loot. At the moment, it is known about 3 ships that transported Ukrainian steel to Rostov, in total, in the port of Mariupol, metal products produced at Azovstal and MMKI plants, worth more than $100 million. As for grain, according to the Ukrainian government, Russia has already stolen up to half a million thousand tons of grain worth more than $100 million, and almost all ships leaving Sevastopol with grain are carrying stolen Ukrainian products.
