Stolen grain in Starobelsk and Svatovo, Luhansk region, is taken out by occupiers in dozens of cars.

This was stated by the head of the Lugansk regional military administration, Sergei Gaidai, in his Telegram channel on Monday, August 29.

He said that in these cities the Russian invaders organized the so-called "zones of simplified customs control." Grain from there is loaded into wagons and taken out towards Russia.

According to him, the occupying authorities have problems even with special railway transport. In this regard, in the direction of the border, trains depart once every two days.
"First, they arranged the export of grain through an elevator in Starobelsk. And recently they started shipping also from Svatovo. There are 60-70 cars in line, because the enemy has only 10 wagons equipped for the export of grain," the chairman of the UVA said.
Gaidai added that the Russian invaders took 200,000 tons of new crop grain from the Luhansk region to Russia.
