Russia prepared to starve Ukrainians months before the full-scale invasion

Global Rights Compliance recent reported reveals that Russia prepared to starve Ukrainians months before the full-scale invasion in 2022.

The international human rights law foundation, Global Rights Compliance, released a report on the plans of Russian-fascist troops to starve Ukrainians.

According to the report, Russia was actively preparing to steal grain supplies and starve the Ukrainian population months before war criminal Vladimir Putin ordered a full-scale invasion of Ukraine,  Ukrinform reports.

Human rights activists noted that when Russian tanks crossed the Ukrainian border on February 24, 2022, they deliberately targeted grain-rich areas and launched attacks on food production infrastructure first. 

According to the GRC report, a Russian defense contractor began purchasing grain trucks as well as three new 170-meter bulk grain carriers as early as December 2021, which indicates the pre-planning nature of this vast grain pillage operation. 

Less than a week after their invasion, Russian troops began commandeering Ukrainian farms, and at its peak Russia was exporting 12,000 tons of grain a day from all temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine.

Evidence from the GRC report will form part of a starvation war crimes dossier eventually submitted to the International Criminal Court, which investigators believe has the potential to be the first international prosecution of starvation as a method of warfare.  

As Information Resistance group previously reported, war crimes committed by the Russian Federation in Ukraine are being investigated by 24 countries of the world.
