Russian occupiers decided to “sell” the legendary Inkerman winery in Crimea
There are several dozen positions in the list of property of the plant being sold.
In the tenth month of a full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine, the occupying authorities of the annexed Crimea decided to put the Inkerman Fine Wine Factory up for auction.
According to the message of the occupying authorities, a bill has been submitted for consideration, providing for the auction to be held in 2023. Real estate will be put up for auction: buildings of factory shops, administrative buildings, and warehouses. The movable property includes pumps, wine-filling machines, tank trucks and forklifts.
In total, several dozen positions are in the list of property of the plant being sold.
The explanatory note to the bill states that the property is “in a worn-out state” and will be sold “at market value”, taking into account the degree of their physical and moral deterioration.
How much the local occupation authorities of Sevastopol plan to earn for the winery is not indicated in the forecast privatization plan.
Inkerman Fine Wine Factory was founded on February 1, 1961, is located in Inkerman, in Sevastopol. The plant is part of the Inkerman International group of companies. The capacity of the Inkerman plant in terms of simultaneous storage of wines and wine materials is 1,050,000 deciliters.
Former US Ambassador to Ukraine, Vice President of the US Institute of Peace William Taylor, during the first parliamentary summit of the international Crimean platform, said that Russia should answer for war crimes and destruction and pay from $750 billion to $1 trillion in reparations for the restoration of Ukraine.
