DISINFO: Ukrainians burned 50,000 tons of grain in Mariupol on purpose
Roman Kossarev, a journalist from RT International noted on the 8th of June, in the Mariupol port, that considerable volumes of corn and wheat, almost 50,000 tons, had been burned at a storage point by Ukrainian forces confirming information from the Russian Ministry of Defence.
Pro-Kremlin disinformation about war in Ukraine, obfuscating Russia's responsibility global food security crisis.
There is no evidence to substantiate claims that Ukrainian forces burnt the grain. Russia's destruction of Ukraine's agricultural production areas, farming and harvesting equipmenyt, looting and plundering, blocking the trade routes in the Black Sea is well-documented.
