International Desk: According to the Tas News Agency, food grains from the Russian-controlled Kherson region of Ukraine have begun to be exported to Russia. That grain was produced last year.
“We have room for new crops,” said Kirill Stremusov, deputy head of the military-civilian administration in Kherson. Although we have plenty of grain here. “People are starting to think realistically and agree with those who want to buy this grain from Russia.”
He said his administration was also working to send sunflower seeds produced in Kherson to local and Russian oil-producing plants.
Ukraine, meanwhile, has been accusing Russia of stealing grain from areas it has occupied over the past few weeks.
Russia started its aggression in Ukraine on February 24.
