The Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine (HUR) has reported that Russian occupiers are plundering both museum and private art collections in the Kherson region. Special groups of soldiers are searching through flats and homes of collectors and antiquarians to find any valuable items. They reportedly take possession of everything believed to be of artistic or historical value. The Russians are being informed about the whereabouts of valuable items by local fraternizers. Witnesses say that the groups seizing the antique collections have special gear and means of transport, and are escorted by armoured military vehicles. The looted items are most likely being sent to the Crimea.
