European ports are to examine Russian grain. Wasn't it stolen from Ukraine?

Europejskie porty mają badać rosyjskie zboże. Czy nie zostało skradzione Ukrainie

The UK Ministry of Agriculture announced that work on a grain verification method should be completed by the end of August, which will allow for quick determination of the grain's origin. This patent will be used in Lithuania and later in other European ports to check whether the Russians are not exporting as their own grain stolen from the occupied territories of Ukraine.

-Together with the Ministries of Agriculture of Great Britain and Lithuania, we have established a tripartite group that is developing a methodology for determining the origin of cereals at the genetic level. By the end of August, the British side is to provide a ready verification system and methods by which employees of relevant laboratories in Lithuania will check this grain. The training is scheduled for September, we hope that we will have results by the end of the year, said Vitaly Hołownia, Ukrainian Deputy Minister of Agricultural Policy and Food, quoted by the Ukrinform agency.

Not only in Lithuania

The British Research Institute for Plant Variety Expertise has already collected and tested samples of Ukrainian grain from various regions in order to determine the "genetic code" of the grain. Special laboratories are to be opened in Lithuanian ports. They will determine the country of origin of grain samples taken from transports and ships. Large amounts of grain of Russian and Belarusian origin are shipped from Lithuanian ports.

-Such an analysis will allow us to determine whether stolen Ukrainian grain is being exported under the cover of this grain, or whether Ukrainian grain is mixed with Russian grain – explains Hołownia. -This is important to us primarily because with such large quantities we will be able to verify the origin of the grain and ultimately submit compensation claims. When we develop the methodology in Lithuania, we will ask other countries to perform similar analyses, Hołownia said.

Previously, such analyzes were carried out only in justified cases, when there were suspicions regarding specific grain transports. The tests were ordered from private laboratories.
