Russian dry cargo ship left the port of occupied Mariupol today with a cargo of rolled metal stolen from Ukrainian owners. Separatist media write this.
"This is the first ship that set sail from this sea harbor with cargo after the liberation of the city… Loading began a few days ago. Rolled metal products were loaded by a floating crane", - the information says.
"Today, 2500 tons of hot-rolled plate left the Mariupol port, the ship headed for Rostov", - leader of the self-proclaimed "DNR" Denis Pushilin specified the volume of the stolen goods and the direction of its shipment.
Earlier, director of the Mariupol port Ihor Barsky reported that the occupiers wanted to steal metal worth $170 million from the port of Mariupol. According to him, about 200 thousand tons of metal and cast iron worth more than $170 million remained on the territory of the enterprise at the beginning of hostilities. Its vast majority belongs to Rinat Akhmetov's Metinvest company. Prior to the full-scale invasion of the russian federation of Ukraine, these products were being prepared for export to Italy and other countries.
In addition, businessman Rinat Akhmetov reported that he was preparing a lawsuit against the russian federation, having assessed the losses of the Ilyich Iron and Steel Works Of Mariupol and Azovstal at least at $17-20 billion.
