British intelligence confirms that the occupiers are stealing Ukrainian minerals

In its latest intelligence review about the Russian-Ukrainian war, the British Ministry of Defense assessed how Russia is stealing minerals and minerals from the occupied parts of Ukraine.

European Pravda reports this.

According to the British department, The Ukrainian authorities have repeatedly drawn attention to this robbery.

"Iron ore, coal, titanium, uranium, manganese, gold and lithium are present in Ukraine, almost certainly their deposits are a desired target for Russia, which is also looking for ways to bleed the Ukrainian economy, depriving it of access to resources and destroying infrastructure,” – the review says.

According to British intelligence, one of the reasons that Russia is trying to improve transport infrastructure in the occupied parts of Ukraine is that it wants to extract more Ukrainian minerals.

In In particular, the department recalled the statements of the occupiers about the allegedly ongoing improvement and construction of road and railway infrastructure in the Zaporozhye region in order to connect the region with Russia. Analysts say that this serves not only a military purpose, but also the export of grain and minerals.

As an example, the review cites the mining of iron ore and its export in the Dneprorudny area in the Zaporozhye region.

"Trains travel through Crimea and the Kerch Bridge to Russia. This activity is not without risk, since the trains travel through areas where there is high activity of Ukrainian partisans,” – says in the review.
