The Russian military has demined part of the seaport in Mariupol and is sending 3,000 tonnes of steel products by ship to Rostov-on-Don.
According to Ukrinform, Verkhovna Rada Human Rights Commissioner Liudmyla Denisova said this on Telegram.
“The looting by the ruscists in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine continues. Following the theft of Ukrainian grain, the occupiers resorted to exporting metal products from Mariupol. To do this, they demined part of the city’s seaport,” Denisova wrote.
She said that the first ship from Mariupol to Rostov-on-Don carried 3,000 tonnes of steel products. Prior to the occupation, there were up to 200,000 tonnes of metal and cast iron worth $170 million in the port.
In addition, to make it easier to take the loot, the enemy began to restore rail links in Mariupol and Volnovakha.
“With their actions, the occupiers violate the IV Geneva Convention of 1949 relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War and Article 8 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court,” Denisova said.
She asked the UN commission investigating human rights violations during Russia’s military invasion of Ukraine to take into account these facts of war crimes and human rights violations.
Ukrainian intelligence said on May 10 that Russia was exporting large quantities of stolen food from the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine. In addition to grain, the enemy is exporting large quantities of stolen vegetables from Ukraine, including beets, potatoes, and cabbage.
