The owner of the grain terminal in the Mariupol port, the UTA Group, with the outbreak of hostilities, ceased operations in Mariupol and other settlements not controlled by Ukraine.

Grain terminals

This is reported by the railway magazine Railway Supply with reference to ProAgro Group.

“Violent hostilities, lack of communications, numerous destruction of industrial and residential infrastructure in the city exclude the possibility of carrying out operational activities and fulfilling their obligations,” the report says.

It is noted that some employees turned to the management with statements about the termination of labor relations in order to receive financial assistance from the state or in search of a new life in other cities of Ukraine and abroad.

At the same time, UTA Group expressed confidence that the time will come when the company will be able to resume its work in the Ukrainian Mariupol.

In addition, Russian troops continue to destroy port infrastructure. In particular, on the evening of April 10, Russian troops launched a missile attack on the warehouses of a subsidiary of the Qatari company QTerminals, located in the Nikolaev region. This was announced by the head of the Nikolaev regional military administration Vitaly Kim.

“Last night it banged, everyone wrote about it. I will not hide – there are missiles. Russian troops attacked an enterprise from Qatar in our region. There are no dead – there are two empty hangars. And the guard was injured by broken glass,” the official wrote.

As previously reported, the icebreaker “Kapitan Bilousov” was fired upon in the port of Mariupol.
