Raw materials for Crimean Titan plant smuggled from Turkey - Activists spotted three vessels with ilmenite


Ilmenite for the Crimean Titan plant in occupied Armyansk is smuggled from Turkey.

Volunteer of the project Informnapalm Yekaterina Yaresko informed about the discovery on Facebook.

“Three vessels were loaded with raw materials in the Turkish port of Ambarli for the needs of the Crimean Titan. Best-1 is already on its way to the closed port of Kerch. Kama and Nefetrudovoz-50M are still in the Sea of Marmara, preparing for the passage through the Bosphorus,” Yekaterina Yaresko reported.

A new scheme for the supply of ilmenite to the Russian-occupied Crimea at the Crimean Titan plant was developed. Turkey continues to violate its own circular number 635/2017, which prohibits direct sea communication between the Turkish and Crimean ports, closed by Ukraine.

Crimean Titan is the largest producer of titanium dioxide in Eastern Europe. The plant belongs to the Ukrainian oligarch Dmitry Firtash.

Reportedly, the Crimean Titan is trying to eliminate the prerequisites for the repetition of the environmental disaster by drilling ultra-deep wells.
