A list of minerals for mining has already been created for the Zaporizhzhia region

In the temporarily occupied territories of the Donetsk region, the Russians plan to distribute "licenses" for the extraction of minerals in order to legalize the theft of Ukrainian subsoil.

The occupation administration has already approved the list of minerals, reports the Center of National Resistance.

It is noted that the Russians plan to extract:

  • clay;
  • limestone;
  • sand, etc.

"All these "licenses" have no legal force and are intended only to create the illusion of legitimizing the robbery of the region," the article says.

The Central Committee emphasized that a similar list of minerals has already been created for the temporarily occupied territory of the Zaporizhzhia region. The project is overseen by the Russian Ministry of Nature.

Ealier, Ecopolitic wrote, that near Mariupol, the occupiers started to extract granite and send it to the territory of Russia and in the direction of Crimea. In April, six blasts were already carried out in the quarries of the villages of Karan, Kalchyk and Aslanovo in order to build Russian roads.

As EcoPolitic reported earlier, the Russians began to take garbage from the Rostov region to the landfills of household waste in the occupied Donetsk region in order to solve the problem of overcrowding of landfills in Russia itself. The occupiers plan to build two more training grounds in Donetsk region, which should also serve the Rostov region.
