On September 19, the 15th international meeting of the Ukraine Defense Contact Group took place in the German state of Rheinland-Pfalz. During his speech, Lloyd Austin specifically named the amount of grain that Russia destroyed in Ukraine: these thousands of tons of grain could feed almost 11 million people for a year.
"The attacks destroyed at least 280.000 tons of grain, enough to feed 10.5 million people for a year," Lloyd Austin.
It is noteworthy that Russia destroys Ukrainian grain not only in occupied ports but also in private landholdings, farms and even in the homes of ordinary Ukrainians who were not lucky enough to live under Russian occupation. Fields, elevators and private granaries came under Russian fire. The international political elite confirms that Russia is using the food that Ukraine exported to other countries as a weapon. Putin is manipulating food security, and instead of capitulating, he is becoming more sophisticated in his manipulations. However, this is a tactic not only of the Kremlin but of the Russian world. Look at the cover of the article: on the left is a Ukrainian who was dying of hunger in 1933 (the 2nd year of the Holodomor), and on the right is an Azov fighter who is being tortured by starvation and beatings in a Russian prison. Both in 1932-33 and in 2023, the executioners are still the same — Russians. The author of the work is Ukrainian Oleh Mykolaichuk.
We remind you that the volume of water in the Kakhovka reservoir would allow watering the entire population of the planet for 2 years.
